Swedish soldiers accidentally blow up wrong house in demolition exercise

During a routine training operation for the Life Regiment Hussars (K3), an elite cavalry division that undertakes intelligence and paratrooper training, soldiers made an error.

The mission, performed with the Swedish home guard in Rojdafors, in west Sweden, near the Norwegian border, required soldiers to capture a house.

However, as the unit zeroed in on the house, it accidentally chose a building 200 yards from the intended target.

The soldiers bombed the house, leaving blown out doors and window frames. Luckily, no one was at home.

“I think we’ve already cleaned up after ourselves. And we have, of course, contacted the owner. There’s no hard feeling between us,” a public relations officer for the elite unit told the Nya Wermlands-Tidningen newspaper.

…………Hey……They’re Swedes and a bit out of practise with fighting  wars……So what do you expect!
