No raised threat level in Sweden after Belgian anti-terror raid

The threat level in Sweden remains unchanged after two suspected Islamist militants were killed in an anti-terror raid in Belgium yesterday, according to the Swedish police's intelligence service, Säpo. 

Belgian officials say that the suspects had just returned from Syria and that they were planning attacks on police targets.

The Swedish intelligence service says to Swedish Television that they are sharing information with the Belgian intelligence services and that they keep people who return from Syria under close watch.

Chief of Säpo Anders Thornberg has previously said that Swedes returning from fighting in Syria and Islamist militants pose the greatest threat to Sweden.

At least 110 people from Sweden have travelled to Syria or Iraq to fight in al-Qaida-inspired groups, according to Säpo.
