Olaf Palme Anniversary

Today is the 27th anniversary of the death of Olaf Palme, the Swedish Prime Minister who was gunned down as he walked home from a cinema with his wife in Stockholm. Swedish police are opening a hotline today in the hope of obtaining new leads that may help solve the country's most high profile political assassination.

There are cultural links between Irish and Swedish citizens and a Swedish Irish Society exists in Stockholm which organizes annual Patrick's Day festivities in the Swedish capital.
