Two 13-Year-Old Boys Suspected Of Man's Murder

Two teenage boys are being questioned over the murder of a 65-year-old man on a farm in Sweden, according to police.
Both of the 13-year-olds were on the run at the time from a foster home when the victim was found dead by a relative in Varberg, which lies in the southwest of the country.

Police have cordoned off the area and forensic teams are examining the crime scene.
The pair were found at an address on Tuesday night in the city of Gothenburg, around 46 miles away.
Detectives have not revealed how the man died.
Police said in a statement: "Witness accounts and objects that link one of the boys to the scene led police to the two boys."
Investigator Cecilia Bergsten said: "It's highly unusual that such young people are suspected of such a serious crime as murder."
In Sweden, children under the age of 15 cannot be charged with a crime or go on trial.
Instead, they are placed in the care of social welfare authorities.
Police are also not allowed to hold children under 15 in custody.
However, they can question them as part of an investigation to determine their possible guilt and whether there is anyone else involved who could be prosecuted.
