From the BBC:
Swedish Foreign Minister Laila Freivalds has resigned in a row related to cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad.
She has been strongly criticised in the press after the foreign ministry ordered the website of a far-right party to be shut down.
The site had been due to publish the cartoons, which sparked a furore after their initial publication in Denmark…
Ms Freivalds was rounded on by the press when a far-right website was forced to close on 9 February, after a foreign ministry official contacted the site’s hosting company.
Critics said this was an intrusion on the freedom of speech.
The minister said she did not order the official to contact the company, but a later report from the ministry said she was involved in the decision.
