Questions About Swedish Afghan Force

Swedish forces serving with ISAF in Afghanistan

A leading opposition member of parliament says the Swedish military is withholding information about attacks on Swedish soldiers in Afghanistan.

Allan Widman represents the Liberal Party in parliament’s Defence Committee. He says the committee has not received all pertinent information about an attack three weeks ago when an anti-tank weapon was fired at Swedish soldiers, or the incident in June last year when a bomb blew up under vehicle carrying two Swedes in northern Afghanistan.

There are around 250 Swedish soldiers taking part in the international peacekeeping mission in Afghanistan. Two were killed in an attack last November.

Widman says he is not questioning the Swedish involvement in Afghanistan, but says the attacks might indicate a rethink is necessary about the force’s planning and equipment.
