Govt: Sweden needs new counter-terrorism strategy

Minister of Home Affairs, Anders Ygeman, says that Sweden's counter-terrorism strategy is outdated and says to Swedish Radio News that the government will start work on a new national strategy as soon as possible. 

The current national counter-terrorism strategy saw the light of day in 2012, and much has happened since, says Ygeman to Swedish Radio. He says that the current strategy lacks precautionary actions and that it doesn't take into account the recent attacks around Europe.

"We have people who leave and fight for IS but we take no precautionary action to prevent them from going nor do we have a clear strategy to minimize radicalisation", Ygeman says.
