From the Daily Mail:
Sweden's Deputy Prime Minister has come under fire after branding the September 11 terror attacks 'accidents'.
Åsa Romson made the comments during an interview on Tuesday, regarding the recent resignation of Sweden's Minister for Housing and IT after he compared Israel to Nazi Germany.
Romson, 44, of coalition partner the Green Party, commended Mehmet Kaplan on his work with young Muslims during 'tough situations like at the 11 September accidents'.And just in case you think she may have misspoken:
While some online commentators have settled for criticising her comments, others have called for her resignation.
Romson later defended her comment, saying: 'The "accident" [of 9/11] is that we ended up with a very harsh debate on integration and how society grows with different religions side by side, and the discrimination that followed.'
This is only the most recent controversial branding to come from the gaffe-prone Swedish Deputy Prime Minister Hours after the attacks in Paris on November 13, where 130 people were killed and 352 injured by ISIS terrorists, Romson tweeted: The very serious events in Paris right now can obstruct the climate change summit in December when more than 100 heads of state have planned on taking part.'
Last May, she faced international criticism after comparing the situation in the Mediterranean in the wake of the European migration crisis to World War II Nazi death camps. Speaking during a live party leader debate Romson said: 'We are turning the Mediterranean into the new Auschwitz.'
