Arrest in connection with Kumla girl's suicide

Police have arrested a man, accused of sex crimes against at least three young girls, including the 13 year old who is thought to have killed herself in Kumla last week, reports news agency TT.

The man, in his mid-40s, was arrested yesterday afternoon in the Gothenburg area.

He is "reasonably suspected" of molestation and also of exploiting children by making them pose sexually. This is the lower grade of suspicion.

Örebro police spokesman Mats Nylén says the man is suspected of harming the girls by publishing films of them on the internet.
