Nord Stream damage 'was sabotage' with explosives found, Sweden says

Traces of explosives have been found near the damaged gas pipelines Nord Stream 1 and 2, Sweden said.

They concluded that the incident was due to ‘gross sabotage’.

Mats Ljungqvist said: ‘During the crime scene investigations that were carried out on site in the Baltic Sea, extensive seizures were made and the area has been carefully documented. 

‘Analyses that have now been carried out show traces of explosives on several of the foreign objects that were found. 

‘The advanced analysis work continues to be able to draw safer conclusions about the incident.’
