Minister rejects Swedish link to Norway terror attack

1:23 min

After a suspected terrorist attack inside a mosque in Norway, the prime minister there says part of the responsibility lies with Swedish neo-Nazis, something rejected by a top Swedish politician.

In a speech after Saturday's attack, Norwegian conservative Prime Minister Erna Solberg said that when neo-Nazis march on Norwegian streets, "a lot of Swedish is heard", and that Sweden's far-right organisations were spilling over into her country causing trouble.

Sweden's Social Democrat energy minister Anders Ygeman responded by saying to newspaper Aftonbladet that the prime minister of Norway should "take a look in the mirror," since she's in government with a right-wing populist party - Fremskrittspartiet - that once had the nationalist terrorist Anders Behring Breivik as a member.
