Armed Chechens detained in Sweden

Three Chechens have reportedly been detained in Sweden after arms were found in their car. Customs officials at Trelleborg port found explosives and Kalashnikov assault rifles in the vehicle, which was travelling from Germany.

The Russian embassy in Sweden says it is waiting for official word from Swedish authorities about the incident.

“We are satisfied with the fact that Swedish special services have managed to trace three persons who were transferring arms and explosives. We are awaiting detailed information on their citizenship from the Swedish side,” said Anatoly Kargapolov, spokesman for the Russian embassy in Sweden.

The incident only confirms the validity of Russia’s warnings of the danger of international terrorism, he added.
