Swedish forces under attack in Afghanistan

Swedish and Finnish soldiers in the NATO-led Isaf force in Afghanistan came under fire in the Chimtal region Friday. No injuries have been reported, and the Swedish military says the situation has calmed down and the force has been able to continue with its mission.

Sweden’s new Defence Minister Karin Enström has been visiting the Swedish forces in Afghanistan this week to familiarize herself with the situation.
