Sweden says Saudi Arabia is recalling its ambassador from Stockholm in a growing diplomatic dispute between the two countries. Swedish Foreign Ministry spokesman Gabriel Wernstedt said Wednesday that Saudi Arabia had informed the ministry that it was recalling Ambassador Ibrahim bin Saad Al-Ibrahim because of “Sweden’s criticism regarding human rights and democracy” in the ultra-conservative kingdom.
