Threatened Swede talks on Paris anniversary
Security was stepped up at an art school in central Sweden ahead of a high profile lecture by Swedish cartoonist and freedom of speech campaigner, Lars Vilks, a year after the attack on French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo.
Lars Vilks, who was caught up in last year's terror shootings in Copenhagen, arrived at the venue amid a strong police presence, with local officers from the Örebro region supported by a team from the neighbouring Värmland area.
"We have secured the premises both inside and outside," Tommy Lindh, a spokesperson for Örebro police told the TT news agency.
