Foreign Minister: Nemtsov's murder was an execution

Sweden's foreign minister Margot Wallström told Swedish Radio News Saturday that she thinks the murder of the Russian opposition politician Boris Nemtsov was an execution that, she says, reinforces the image of President Vladimir Putin's reign of terror.

"We are deeply shocked by this and, of course, so are our colleagues in Moscow and everyone who knew him are very shaken by this murder, which seemed rather quickly to be an execution. We have already said that it is very important now that those responsible must be made accountable for this," Wallström said.
