As part of its inquiry into the killing of two Swedish soldiers in Afghanistan, the Armed Forces investigative commission has visited the site in Mazar-i-Sharif where the officers were shot dead a week ago. According to news bureau TT, the seven-man team begun its investigation on Wednesday, and should require about one to two weeks to complete it.

“Since we arrived, we have put a lot of work into clarifying the incident and we have come a ways. We are working with great precision and visiting the site was very important in order to get an idea of what happened,” Brigadier General Jan-Gunnar Isberg wrote in a press release on the Swedish Armed Forces’ website.

Captain Johan Palmlöv, 28, and Lieutenant Gunnar Andersson, 31, were killed on Sunday, February 7, along with their interpreter Mohammad Shahab Ayouby. The Afghani shooter was shot dead by police directly thereafter.
