A 15-year-old boy was charged on Friday for drawing swastikas on a church wall - with chocolate milk.

Personnel at Hortlax Church in northern Sweden went to work one day in April  to discover that Nazi symbols had been scrawled all over the walls.

They had been drawn with chocolate milk, a local paper reported.

On Friday a 15-year-old boy was charged for the incident. He is allegedly also responsible for drawing swastikas on a school in Hortlax in January, and faces charges for both vandalism and hate crimes.
