Swedish resident suspected of war crimes in Syria

A 33-year-old man living in Stockholm has been remanded into custody on suspicion of committing war crimes in Syria.

A photograph from 2014 shows the man posing with the dead and injured in Syria. The man was then in the Syrian army and says that he was forced to pose on the photograph by his superiors.

The prosecution must present its case before 7 September.
