Swedish party official suspended after making offensive post about Anne Frank

An official with a Swedish political party was suspended Saturday after reportedly making offensive comments about Holocaust victim and diarist Anne Frank on social media, The Associated Press reported.

Rebecka Fallenkvist, a 26-year-old programming head with the far-right group Sweden Democrats, called Frank "immoral" and derogatory names in a post on Instagram, AP reports, citing Swedish media. The post has since been deleted, but can be seen in a tweet from the Israeli ambassador to Sweden, Ziv Nevo Kulman, who condemned the remarks.
