3:34 min

Underage asylum seekers who come to Sweden alone are frequently in the news. Often, it is the politicians fighting it out over budget questions and the costs of caring for and educating them. We less often hear from the children themselves. Radio Sweden got a chance to speak with 18-year-old Mustafa about his story, moments after he had given a seminar alongside the migration minister. Ann Törnkvist began by asking Mustafa why he left Somalia.
