The Swedish mercenary Jesper Söder, who is fighting against the Islamic State, has been captured in Iraq, along with another Swede, confirms the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. But who took them and why, they can not say.
However, according to the Kurdish guerrilla group YPG, which Söder is fighting for, it is the rival group, The Kurdish Democratic Party, KDP, that has captured the men. The difference between the groups is, writes GP, that YPG is a Marxist-Leninist guerrilla group, while KDP is a capitalist liberal conservative group.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs says that it follows the development and is in contact with the Iraqi authorities.
In a post on Facebook on June 10, Jesper Söder wrote that the fighting for IS's last fortress in Syria, Raqqa, is so extensive that they are battling around the clock.
