Riots in the Somali capital Mogadishu

Somalis Released from Custody

Two Swedes of Somali origin who are accused of financing terror groups in their native country have been released from custody.

But, as news agency TT reports, the prosecutor is upholding the charge. The two who men were arrested in February belong to the Somali opposition.

This had led to protests by the Swedish-Somali Association who claims that the men are treated like political captives by the Swedish authorities. Their trial is expected to commence after the summer.
