Webcam may reveal Swedish naval secrets
A local government webcam promoting the port city of Karlskrona as a tourist attraction is a security risk according to a British defence analyst, who says it should be taken down.
H.I. Sutton tells Radio Sweden that the camera reveals the operational patterns of Sweden's sole fleet of five naval submarines.
It gives a very good perspective for someone to observe and monitor and analyse the operational patterns and capabilities and readiness of the Swedish Navy.
The Swedish Armed Forces had asked for the camera to be removed, according to the local newspaper that broke the story, BLT. However, Karlskrona's local tourism officer Terje Pedersen told the newspaper that the camera would remain as it was some distance from the port.
On Thursday morning, the council were meeting to renew talks on whether to take down the camera.
