Swedish Troops in Afghanistan

Much like in the States, Swedish news on the military from TheLocal seems to be oriented towards the government perspective rather than the predominant national feeling. An article from early March reports:
“There are currently 350 Swedish soldiers stationed in the country and within a year the force is expected to have been increased to 500. The government has not yet approved the reinforcements but Lindström is counting on them doing so.”
