Prosecutor to probe US surveillance in Sweden

• AP

Sweden is investigating to see whether the US embassy has committed any crime by carrying out surveillance measures, the prosecutor's office said today in a case similar to one that has blown up in neighbouring Norway.

The probe to see if illegal intelligence gathering has taken place was launched after the Swedish Security Police at the weekend confirmed the US embassy had a surveillance system in place since 2000, without informing the local authorities.
