The Swedish government is dissatisfied with Israel's investigation of an attack in the contentious West Bank city of Hebron that left a Swedish activist with a broken cheekbone, the Swedish Foreign Ministry said Tuesday. "We're concerned that this hasn't been followed up, and we intend to speak to the relevant authorities and ask for more information about the incident," said Petra Hansson, a spokeswoman for the Swedish Foreign Ministry. The Swede, Tove Johansson, a volunteer with the pro-Palestinian International Solidarity Movement, suffered a broken cheekbone and a fracture near her eye on Saturday when a group of European activists were assaulted by Jews in the heart of Hebron, according to Jason Brown, another activist present at the time of the clash. None of the assailants were apprehended, police said.
