Stabbed Swedish politician dies
Swedish Foreign Minister Anna Lindh has died in hospital one day after being stabbed several times by an unidentified man in the centre of Stockholm.

Lindh was attacked in a department store as she was shopping in the centre of the city on Wednesday.

She suffered wounds in the chest, stomach and arms in the attack and doctors had spent most of the night trying unsuccessfully to control her severe internal bleeding.

Lindh was one of the country's most popular politicians and a prominent figure in the campaign for Sweden to adopt the euro as its currency.
