Suspect confesses to killing Swedish foreign minister: prosecutors

A 25-year-old man suspected of killing Swedish foreign minister Anna Lindh has confessed to police, prosecutors said, raising hopes of a speedy conviction in a crime that shocked the peaceful Scandinavian nation to the core. The suspect, Mijailo Mijailovic, reportedly confessed on Tuesday after months of denial, shortly after prosecutors presented his lawyer with around 1,000 pages of evidence. “He admitted to the crime,” the chief prosecutor in the case, Krister Petersson told AFP.

Her death, the next day, sent shockwaves through Sweden, where she had been tipped as a future prime minister. Full Story
