Six arrested for attack on Swedes

Six people have now been arrested in Somalia, suspected of being behind last Wednesday's car shooting in Mogadishu where the young Swedish Left Party politician Abdirahim Hassan was killed.

"We can confirm that six people have been arrested," says foreign ministry spokesperson Karin Nylund to news agency TT. 

The Left Party's group leader in Stockholm, Ann-Margarethe Livh, received gunshot wounds in the attack and has since been treated in hospital in Kenya.

No further details were available from the foreign ministry.
