African war causes Swedish trial

Two men accused of planing to commit terrorist attacks in Somalia are in court today.

The trial, which will last two weeks, is based on a surveillance operation by the Swedish security service, including telephone taps and bugs.

The prosecution says that the two men, aged 22 and 26, based in Gothenburg and in a Stockholm suburb, travelled to Somalia and were trained to be suicide bombers by the Islamic armed group al-Shabab.

Their defence lawyer, Tomas Olsson, says that that taking sides in a civil war in another part of the world is not a crime and that Swedish ant-terrorism law cannot be applied to this case.
