Swede Convicted of Terror Charges

Published onsdag 11 juni 2008 kl 10.13

A Moroccan court has sentenced 29 people – including a Swedish citizen - to prison terms of one to eight years for recruiting volunteers to fight U.S.-led troops in Iraq.

News agency Reuters reports that Police rounded what they called the ”Tetouan Cell” in January last year and charged them with financial and ideological links to Al Qaeda and the Moroccan Islamic Fighting Group.

The accused 55-year-old native Moroccan who lived in Sweden for 30 years before returning to his native country, was sentenced to three years in prison. According to the Swedish Embassy in Morocco, Safri considers himself innocent and will appeal the verdict.
