CIA Plane Inquiry
Sweden’s government is launching an investigation into reports that CIA aircraft have landed at several of the country’s airports.
Prime Minister Göran Persson says that if concerns are valid the government will address the question of what was transported in the planes with the United States.
Persson’s comments followed calls for a government inquiry into a report that at least two suspected CIA planes have touched down at Swedish airports over the past three years and that one of them was used at Guantanamo probably for transporting prisoners.
Similar reports of suspicious CIA planes secretly using airports have emerged in a number of European countries including Norway.
