Abstract
The purpose of this essay is to examine if the ethics of journalism have been transformed during the so-called war on terrorism. The analysis is based on press material in Svenska Dagbladet from two comparative cases regarding the detention of Swedish citizen Mehdi Ghezali by the US and Pakistani government.
The theoretical framework is based on the situation of ethics in contemporary international press covering the war on terrorism, and what impact the press ethics have on the human rights situation.

The examination of the two cases in this essay shows that the situation of ethics in the Swedish press is some times bad, which causes a negative result for human rights in Sweden and internationally.
