Money running out for journalists in Ethiopia

Nearly $US 150,000 dollars has been raised for the imprisoned journalists Johan Persson and Martin Schibbye, but the money is running out.

"It's been very useful. About 80 percent of the money has gone to lawyer's fees, but also to Johan and Martin's food and hygiene," says Jacob König, an accountant with Reporters without Borders, to the newspaper Göteborgs-Posten.

The two Swedish journalists are serving an 11-year sentence in Ethiopia for supporting terrorism and entering the country illegally.

Part of the money has also gone to trips for their family members. A support party has been planned in Gothenburg on April 12.
