Swedes Released from Ethiopia

Published måndag 21 maj 2007 kl 13.03

Three Swedes held in Ethiopia, accused of having ties with Islamic militants in Somalia, were released and returned to Sweden over the weekend.

Lawyers for the men said they had received no prior indication that the three were to be released.

The three, who were not identified, had been held for five months. The Swedish Foreign Ministry had presented a formal letter of protest to Ethiopia’s ambassador in Stockholm asking for their release.

Human rights groups say hundreds of detainees, including women and children, have been transferred secretly and illegally into Ethiopia.

Ethiopia has denied the suspects were detained illegally.
