  • With less than a year until the next election, the leaders of Sweden's eight parliamentary parties met in a TV debate on Sunday, discussing everything from welfare to crime.
  • Green Party leader Per Bolund clashed with Jimmie Åkersson of the Sweden Democrats, who asked if Bolund was calling him a Nazi during the debate.
  • The debate was Prime Minister Stefan Löfven's last before he steps down as leader of the Social Democrat party next month.
