August 21, 2009 12:15

Sweden's Foreign Minister Carl Bildt has rejected Israeli calls for an official condemnation of a Swedish newspaper article about organ harvesting, saying freedom of expression is a cornerstone of democracy. Bildt wrote in a blog post late Thursday that he wouldn't condemn an article in Swedish tabloid Aftonbladet that suggested IDF troops harvested the organs of dead Palestinians. He said that freedom of expression is part of the Swedish constitution.
