Foreign Affairs Ministry: “Swedes abroad should be cautious”

Published 18 October 2023
- By Editorial Staff
The threat level against Swedes abroad is considered to be elevated.

After the terror attack in Brussels, the Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs is now warning all Swedes who are abroad and advising them to “exercise increased caution and heightened vigilance”.

“The threat against Sweden and Swedish interests abroad has already been heightened. Given that two Swedes were killed in Brussels in a presumed terrorist act, Swedes abroad are advised to exercise increased caution and heightened vigilance, and to heed the advice of local authorities”, they state in a press release.

Swedes abroad are also encouraged to register on the “Swedish list” and to download the “UD Resklar” app, and enable push notifications for the country they are in.

“Revenge” for Koran burnings

Previously, terror researcher Magnus Ranstorp advised Swedish citizens abroad to “not unnecessarily display that they are Swedish”. Similar warnings came from Ulrica Bergsten, SVT’s foreign correspondent in Brussels.

– I and other Swedes received an SMS telling us to stay in a safe place. People are advised to take down their flags and not display that they are Swedish, she reported earlier in the day.

The threat against Sweden and Swedish targets is deemed to be heightened after several Islamist terror organizations called for attacks as “revenge” for the burnings of the Quran that have taken place and are allowed in Sweden.
