Swedish planes in new EU Mediterranean mission

1:18 min

The new EU security operation in the Mediterranean will include Swedish airplane reconnaissance.

Mattias Lindholm at the coastguard says the new operation "Themis" has a slightly different focus to previous missions.

Now anti-terrorist and cross-border crime investigations will be handled at the same time as saving lives of migrants at sea.
