Hell's Angels

Reporter Fired due to Gang Ties

A reporter at the Swedish tabloid Expressen is being forced to resign after revelations of close ties with a member of the Hell's Angels biker gang.

Staffan Erfors had been working as Expressen's correspondent in the United States while at the same time letting former Hell's Angels gang leader Thomas Möller stay in his apartment here.

Expressen's editor-in-chief Thomas Mattson says that trust in the reporter has been severely damaged, which makes it impossible for him to continue working for the newspaper. (ah/gw)
