FOREIGN. Swedish Radio censored a police press conference on the night’s terrorist attack in Orlando.
– I do not have time to do any interviews now, says SR’s responsible publisher to the Friatider.se.
SR themselves wrote on Twitter that they were afraid that sensitive data could be mentioned at the press conference, such as the name of the terrorist who carried out the deed.
No name was never mentioned at the press conference, however, FBI spokesman Danny Banks revealed that the terrorist in the attack is suspected to have links with the terrorist group Islamic State.
The decision in this way to censor a news conference police has been criticized in social media. Some are wondering whether SR’s Twitter account was hijacked by someone trying to put the radio company in a bad light.
One of those critical is a professional policeman in Stockholm who thinks that SR’s actions are “worrying”.
