A 14-year-old girl is suspected of causing another teenager's death at a residential care home in Trollhätten, western Sweden.

The girl was questioned by authorities on Thursday after an argument at the HVB care-home the previous day led to a 17-year-old girl being taken to hospital, where she later died.
