Sweden says has proof of foreign submarine intrusion in October

STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - Sweden has proof that a small foreign submarine was operating illegally in its waters last month, its top military officer said on Friday after a mysterious episode that triggered the country's biggest military mobilisation since the Cold War.

Sweden asylum seekers to hit two-decade high

STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - The number of asylum seekers arriving in Sweden may reach its highest in two decades because of people fleeing Syria and Iraq, whose arrival could push immigration costs close to 1 percent of GDP in a country where tension over new arrivals is rising. The Migration Board, the government agency responsible for immigrants, said it expected between 80,000 and 105,000 asylum seekers to come to Sweden next year #Business #facebook #United States #India #Syria #Arabic #Argentina #United Kingdom #Sweden #opinion
