Web Opression in Sweden

Good news and bad news from Sweden. First the bad news.

Government officials in Sweden applied pressure to close down a web site for publishing the Mohammed cartoons.

Then the good news.
Swedish Foreign Minister Laila Freivalds quit on Tuesday after a row over the closure of a Web site with cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad, embarrassing Prime Minister Goran Persson six months ahead of elections.

Al Reuters has the rest.
