Southern Sweden was hit by the remnants of Storm Doris over Thursday night, as snow combined with wind to cause tricky conditions for drivers and leave few signs that spring is on its way any time soon.
Between 5 and 10 centimetres of snow was expected to have fallen in the south of the country by Friday morning, thanks to the dying strains of the storm which has made its way west after hitting the UK earlier this week.
"That's what has caused the snowfall over southern Skåne, but it is in a weakened form compared to how it was in the UK before," SMHI meteorologist Mattias Burtu told news agency TT.
"There is a risk of slippery snow on the roads. In the southwestern parts closest to the coast it'll become slippery slush

An 18-year-boy has been cleared of all murder charges after spending five months in custody suspected of killing a homeless German man at a railway station in Hässleholm.
The man, who was identified as a German national in his fifties with no fixed abode, was found dead near a train station in Hässleholm, southern Sweden, in August last year. He had been stabbed three times.
A 17-year-old boy was arrested a week later on suspicion of murdering him. But on Friday Hässleholm District Court found that it had not been proven he was ever at the scene.
The police have not been able to find the weapon that was used to kill the homeless man, and there is no other forensic evidence linking the teenager, who is now

If you love pork, you'll love this Swedish recipe for pork chops with apple and sage stuffing. Summary
Serves: 2
Preparation: 10 minutes
Cooking: 30 minutesTips
- If you can't get thick pork chops, don't try to stuff them with the apple and celery mixture. Instead, coarsely chop the ingredients for the stuffing and fry gently for 5 minutes or so and serve as a kind of sauce. For a bit more theatre, let the chops rest for 5 minutes after taking them out of the oven then flambé them at the table.
- If you haven't got any aquavit or snaps you can use brandy or simply eat the pork without flambéing. It is such a tasty dish anyway that the flambéing isn't really necessary: it just makes for a bit more fun!Ingredients
2 thick por

azeri gas pipeline to start pumping gas by 2020 | news

The Southern Gas Corridor will start pumping gas from the Caspian Sea to Europe by 2020, its backers said on Thursday, despite the risk of delays to this option for reducing dependence on Russia.Politicians and ministers meeting in Baku backed the $40 billion, 3,500-kilometer chain of pipelines, a step toward curbing Russia’s one-third share of Europe’s natural gas market.The Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) is the project’s end piece, joining up with the Trans Anatolian Pipeline at the Turkish border, then crossing Greece and Albania to reach Italy. But the slow pace of work in Italy’s Puglia region and growing concern over Azerbaijan’s ability to honor its supply commitments – it faces domestic shortfalls – have knocked confidence in the project.[Reuters]

matthew mott says stars 'under pressure' to perform

Southern Stars coach Matthew Mott says his batters are "under pressure" to perform when the tourists begin their one-day series against New Zealand on Sunday.The Stars were humbled with the bat in losing the final two Twenty20 matches against the White Ferns in Australia, and have been firmly put under the spotlight by Mott in the best-of-three Rose Bowl series in New Zealand, beginning at Eden Park.
Australian captain Meg Lanning. Photo: Rohan Thomson"To me, for the batting group, it's about ownership and really taking accountability to see the innings through," Mott said on Saturday."I think too many people threw their wickets away in the T20. Admittedly, it's a different format – ODIs give you more time to set your plans up and bat a little bit longer."We talk a lot about match-winnin

sweden warned of february wildfires. yes, you read that right

Forget about this week's snowy weather in much of Sweden. In other parts spring has already sprung, so much so that forecasters on Friday issued a warning for grass fires in the south.
The warning applies to most of the southern Götaland region as well as the Öland and Gotland islands. Meteorologists said the fire risk was due to combination of no snow, warmth from the sun and dry air.
Many Swedes tend to start the barbecue season the moment temperatures edge below zero, but Leif Sandahl of the Civil Contingencies Agency urged people to be careful.
"When there's this high grass fire risk, and especially in combination with wind, you shouldn't light a fire because it is too risky," he told the TT newswire.
Sweden has around 2000-3000 grass fires every year, according to the authori

pakistan's vulnerable, embattled shrines

The sufi shrines of Pakistan, sanctuaries for the poor and the weak, are being attacked by the extremistsLast Thursday, a suicide bomber affiliated with the Islamic State attacked Sehwan Sharif, one of the most revered Sufi shrines, in the southern Sindh Province of Pakistan, killing more than 80 people, including 24 children, and wounding more than 250. Why the terrorists hate Sehwan is why we love it. The saint and his shrine at Sehwan belong to everyone, to Sunnis and Shiites, to Hindus and Muslims, transgender devotees, to believers and questioners alike. The inclusiveness, the rituals and music born of syncretic roots make shrines like Sehwan Sharif targets in the extremist interpretations of the IS and other radical Wahhabi militants. As a child in the late 1980s and early ‘90s, I wo
