Israel angered over Swedish 'body parts' story

A diplomatic argument between Sweden and Israel is growing after a Swedish newspaper published an article detailing allegations that Israeli soldiers stole the organs of dead Palestinians in 1992.

In the report, published in Sweden's leading tabloid, a freelance journalist accused the Israeli army of stealing body organs from Palestinian men after killing them.

The Swedish government has failed to condemn the article and Israel is seeking to lodge an official complaint.

Al Jazeera's Jonah Hull visited the newspaper's offices in Stockholm.
