'Ogaden Swede' has landed in Addis Ababa
Mohamud Dayib, the Ethiopian-Swedish man from Gothenburg who was arrested and assaulted in the Ogaden province last weekend, has landed in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa, where he will meet Swedish embassy staff and receive medical care.
"My brother and one of his children have soon reached the capital Addis Ababa. I spoke to him briefly, for around two minutes, and he said they are waiting for staff from the Swedish embassy to come and get them," Mr Dayib's brother told Swedish Radio News.
The rest of the family were expected to reach Addis Ababa on Tuesday evening.
Mr Dayib is involved in politics in Gothenburg as a member of the Green Party and has been a Swedish resident for the past 30 years. He was seized and beaten by police while on holiday with his family.
Ogaden, which is close to the border with Somalia, is the war-torn region where two Swedish journalists, Martin Schibbye and Johan Persson, were arrested in 2011.
