The Swedish prosecution authority has closed a preliminary murder investigation opened when the body of a missing Pakistani journalist was found in Uppsala in April, saying they no longer suspect a crime has taken place.

The body of Sajid Hussain, 39, was found in the Fyris river just north of the city where he had been working and studying.

The Swedish Prosecution Authority has now closed its preliminary investigation, explaining that there is no longer cause to continue with it.
