Lars Danielsson

Sweden Terror Law

The Swedish government will present a proposal later this year to make it easier to call in military forces in case of a terrorist attack on home soil.

A senior government aide, Lars Danielsson, said such a law has been debated since 2003, but in the wake of Thursday’s bombings in London the government has decided to move forward with the proposal.

”This has given it increased urgency,” he said.

The law would outline when and how military forces can be called in to help police prevent an attack, or deal with the aftermath of one.
