Earlier today Anna Lindh, Sweden's popular Minister of Foreign Affairs, was stabbed, and seriously injured in the chest, stomach, and an arm while shopping at the mall NK in Stockholm; she was not accompanied by police or bodyguards at the time (in Sweden apparently only the Prime Minister, the King, the Queen, and the Crown Princess have permanently attached bodyguard-details). The assailant was described as white, tall, and muscular, and wearing a camouflage jacket, and has so far apparently not been captured. He had first struck her head with his hand, causing her to fall, and stabbed her while she was lying on the floor. Mrs Lindh is in hospital undergoing surgery, it is reported that the injuries extend to her liver. While serious, her injuries are reported to not be lifethreatening.
