Self-Imolation Threat Defused

Published tisdag 11 juli 2006 kl 11.11

A couple from Turkey threatened to set fire to themselves in the offices of the Swedish Migration Board in the northern city of Kiruna Monday.

They had doused themselves in gasoline.

After 11 hours of negotiations the stand-off ended and the couple could be taken to a doctor for care. Previously they had allowed their two children to be removed from the locale.

Earlier that day the family had been told they had been refused asylum in Sweden.
