  Empty stands greet Israel-Sweden tennis tie  

Sweden’s Davis Cup tie with Israel is being played at an empty stadium in the Swedish city of Malmo.

With thousands of people gathering outside to protest against Israel’s three-week offensive against Gaza, the police have had to keep the gates closed and turn away spectators.
