Newsline: Iran recalls ambassador to Sweden over court decision

Iran’s state TV said Thursday the country’s foreign ministry recalled its ambassador from Sweden after an Iranian citizen was sentenced to life by a Swedish court for committing war crimes and murder during the Iran-Iraq war in the 1980s. The report quoted ministry spokesman Nasser Kanaani as saying the ambassador took the action for some “consultation” over the life sentence for Hamid Noury earlier this month.
