STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - The Swedish Prosecution Authority said on Friday it had requested that a person arrested on Tuesday remain in custody on suspicion of gross illegal intelligence activities against Sweden and against a foreign power.

The court handling the case has not yet set a time for the detention hearing, the agency said.

A second person arrested in Tuesday's raid has been released but remains a suspect, prosecutors said.
