Turkey has angrily reacted to the cancellation of a panel in Sweden about the failed July coup attempt seeking to oust the government from power, calling it a "blow" to the freedom of expression.The office of the Turkish prime minister, in a statement late Friday, condemned the cancellation and said it was the result of "interference by some Swedish parliamentarians".The panel should have taken place in a small school of a Stockholm district.The purge has alarmed European states, which have urged Turkey to act within the rule of law.
