Sweden Friday summoned Iraq's ambassador after condemning the hanging of an Iraqi-Swedish citizen among 38 militants belonging to Daesh (ISIS) or Al-Qaeda in the southern city of Nasiriyah.The executions Thursday were the largest number in Iraq on a single day since Sept. 25, when 42 people were put to death in the same prison in Nasiriyah.A source at the prison said all the militants were Iraqis, while the Swedish citizen, who Swedish media reports said was in his 60s, had dual Iraqi citizenship.Swedish authorities did not confirm his age, nor how he ended up in Iraq or whether he was a Daesh or Al-Qaeda member.
