Libyan diplomats deported

Sweden has deported two diplomats who worked with the Libyan embassy in Stockholm.

"Their activity has been in conflict with the rules that apply to diplomats," says foreign ministry press officer, Anders Jörle to TV4 News.

The diplomats were reportedly working in cooperation with the Gaddafi regime.

The foreign ministry has no diplomatic contact with Libya at present, since they believe that there is no government who can speak for the country, reports news agency TT.
