Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Though Sweden does have a new approach to attempted suicide by train.
A cleaner stole an empty commuter train from a depot and drove it to a suburb of Stockholm where it derailed and slammed into an apartment building, officials have said.

The woman was seriously injured in the early-morning crash and was flown to a Stockholm hospital, police spokesman Lars Bystrom said. No one else was injured.

Technical inquiry is done, and though still unconscious the cleaner has been cleared of all charges. The prosecutor is now proceeding with an investigation into breach of worker safety regulations, but says it will crucial to question the cleaner. So not much will happen before she wakes up. Union says it is not the first time the company has jumped the gun.

Since breaches of worker safety regulations are less exciting then someone stealing a train, I guess this will not make the international media.
