    - Inter Press Service

    STOCKHOLM / ROME, Sep 06 (IPS) - Like most of us, I rely on news media to find an explanation to tragedies I watch on TV.

We had for some years been working as teachers at a high school, though this was not Bernth’s main occupation. Most of the time, he served as an officer during international, armed campaigns supported by the Swedish government. He had been to former Yugoslavia, the West Bank and not the least in Afghanistan, where he since 2003 on several occasions worked as ”instructor” for Afghan officers.
