Few leads in Swede’s murder

SEVERAL men have been questioned in connection with last week’s beating death of Swedish national Jan Ola Jordansson, police said Thursday, adding that authorities are now looking for more than one killer.

Jordansson, 45, disappeared from the Hotel Scandinavia last week and was found dead in Kandal province on Saturday.

A man who checked into the same hotel left a Nigerian passport when he skipped his bill.

“We’ve had some positive signs in the hunt for the killers but we cannot say yet who the suspects are,” said Mok Chito, head of the Interior Ministry’s Criminal Police Department, when asked whether police were looking for a Nigerian national.

“We cannot say yet whether the suspect is Nigerian.... All we have is video footage from the hotel,” Mok Chito said.
