Job cuts at Svenska Dagbladet newspaper

Sixty jobs will be cut at Sweden's third biggest broadsheet, Svenska Dagbladet, to make savings worth US$6 million, its editor-in-chief Lena K Samuelsson writes.

The paper has previously cut staff levels to save money, and Samuelsson says she hopes the new wave of job cuts can be solved through voluntary measures.

Staff were informed of the decision Wednesday morning, news agency TT reports.

Local broadsheet Upsala Nya Tidning also recently announced it was also threatening to cut staff numbers, if journalists did not agree to sign new contracts extending their working hours.
