Two young men have been remanded into custody on suspicion of the murder of a 55-year-old man in Gothenburg on Wednesday.
The men have also been remanded on alternative charges of being an accessory to murder and aggravated assault.

The formal remand court proceedings will be held in Gothenburg District Court later on Sunday.
 
Two further men arrested after the murder in the Hisingen area of the city were released on Saturday. Two other men were arrested.
 
The attack took place around five kilometres away from another deadly shooting at a restaurant in Hisingen in March. Two people died and eight others were injured following the incident in the Biskopsgården suburb and the event sparked a national debate about gun crime in Sweden's second largest city.
 
 
Police have not arrested any suspects in connection with the shooting. While police believe that there is no direct link between the two killings they are both thought to involve criminal gangs.
