AfD accused of ′fake news′ over Sweden travel ban post | Germany | DW.COM | 06.03.2017

Germany’s Federal Foreign Office accused the far-right nationalist Alternative für Deutschland party (AfD) of peddling fake news when it claimed the department had issued a “serious travel warning” for Sweden.”There is no travel warning for Sweden,” the Foreign Office wrote on its Facebook page. “For one year, (the department) has written in its travel and safety notes for Sweden that there is a terror alert level three – ‘Increased danger’. Prior to this, the terrorism warning was level 4 – ‘High risk.'”It suggested using the headline “The Federal Foreign Office has pointed out a year ago that the Swedish government has lowered the level of terrorism,” saying “we’re sorry, if that sounds less interesting.”
