- Sweden’s investigation into the sabotage of the Nord Stream gas pipeline has been closed, as Swedish courts lack jurisdiction in the matter.
- The underwater gas pipeline, which lies in international waters, was attacked in September 2022.
- Public prosecutor Mats Ljungqvist had been tasked with finding any potential Swedish link to the incident, which has proven elusive. A German-led investigation is ongoing.
