"Now there is a demonstration from the attack divers - the Swedish frogmen.

- They shot 20 meters from the kings and 5-10 meters from us. The ground almost shook when they shot, says B.T.'s dispatcher.

But it did not move the King much. - King Frederik seemed completely calm."


Strange thing to say about a man they know is also a former frogman...
