COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — Swedish officials say they have decided to close their investigation into the September 2022 explosions on the underwater Nord Stream gas pipelines, which were built to carry Russian natural gas to Germany, because they don’t have jurisdiction. Sweden’s investigation was one of three into the explosions. Denmark and Germany are also examining the blasts.

The source of the sabotage has been a major international mystery.
