The arrests were made in the Gothenburg area on Thursday morning, a spokesperson for Sweden’s Security Service (Säkerhetspolisen or Säpo) told Swedish news agency TT.
Prosecutor Ronnie Jacobsson confirmed that the suspects were being held over offences alleged to have taken place in Syria two years ago.
“The men are 30 and 32, Swedish citizens and residents in Gothenburg,” he said.
“Both are suspected of a terrorist homicide in Syria in the spring of 2013,” he added.
“There may be more people that we need to talk to, so I can say no more at the moment.”
