Swedish Radio’s correspondent in Aleppo was forced to leave the country last night, after the Syrian government accused her of spreading false information.

This has been criticised by Sweden’s prime minister. “Journalists should be able to do their job. It just shows that they don’t want someone reporting from this kind of region,” says Stefan Löfven.

Swedish Radio’s director general says “the fact that the Syrian administration is taking this sort of action against an accredited journalist trying to do her job, is not only regrettable but outrageous.”

Radio correspondent Cecilia Uddén has been reporting on all sides in the Syrian war. She is now in Lebanon after having her permission to stay in Syria revoked. Swedish Radio will seek accreditation for other journalists to keep covering the situation in Aleppo.
