Swedish Political Party Site Shut Down by Government

From the BBC.

Swedish Foreign Minister Laila Freivalds described Kuriren's move as "a provocation" by "a small group of extremists".

"I will defend freedom of the press no matter what the circumstances" she said.

Sounds like it.

Levonline CEO Turkel Nyberg told the BBC News website his company had pulled the plug on the site after discussions with the foreign ministry and the security police.
"It seemed like it could be a bad for us and for others to have the site up. The problem was the content, which was these Muhammad pictures," he said.

I've got no idea what kind of stuff's on it, as I can't read Swedish. Can't see the pictures either. There's a mirror here.
