A computer found hidden under a desk at Jonkoping Airport in central
Sweden is being analysed by police in a case of suspected industrial
espionage, according to airport officials.

Peter Jutterstrom, chair of the airport's board, has said that he
believes the case may involve espionage.

"Someone obviously thinks that this airport is very exciting," he told
the local Jonkopings-Posten newspaper on Wednesday.

The computer, which was connected to Jonkoping Airport's internal
network, was discovered by a member of staff a couple of weeks ago,
according to the newspaper.

Information collected on the computer, including possibly highly
sensitive data, was passed onto another user, according to police, who
are now investigating the matter and analysing the computer.
