Iran recalls envoy to Sweden over court decision:


State TV said Iran has recalled its ambassador from Sweden after an Iranian citizen was sentenced to life by a Swedish court for his role during the Iran-iraq war in the 1980s. The Stockholm District Court said Hamid Noury took part in severe atrocities in July and August 1988 while working as an assistant to the deputy prosecutor at a prison outside the city of Karaj. Noury denied wrongdoing, and Iran called the court a “show” based on political motives.
