Sweden's justice minister, Anders Ygeman of the Social Democrats, says his party is willing to listen to the Green Party's proposal for electronic tagging of failed asylum seekers who are deemed a security risk and are waiting to be deported.

"It is especially a good idea for those who are judged to be a threat and who should be expelled, but there is an enforcement barrier. I believe it can be an alternative to the custody or supervision that we have today, " Justice Minister Anders Ygeman tells Swedish news agency TT.

The Green Party proposal for electronic ankle tags will be up for discussion next week in cross-party talks on action against terrorism.
