Police: Quiet EU Meeting

Police in Jönköping report that the first bigger EU-meeting in Sweden after the riots in Gothenburg in 2001, has been so quiet that they got time over to do other things.

Several of the 300 policemen and women called in to work when EU:s Ministers of Health, Employment and Social Affairs met on the University Campus of Jönköping this week ended up doing alcohol-tests on local drivers instead.

A spokesperson for the police told the news agency TT that "the people of Jönköping have never been so safe around town, or as closely guarded, as they have been this week".
