Swedes warned to leave Gaza

The Swedish consulate in Jerusalem has transmitted a United Nations warning to all Swedish institutes and organizations working in the West Bank and Gaza to leave the area.

Threats have been aimed at ’Danes or Scandinavians’ – in the aftermath of the publication of Danish cartoons portraying the Moslem prophet Mohammed as a weapons-carrying terrorist.

Denmark has evacuated all its UN personnel from the region after threats were made to the UN High Commissioner for Refugees.
