Swedish journalists found guilty in Ethiopia

Ethiopian troops captured Johan Persson and Martin Schibbye six months ago during a clash with rebels in the East African state’s Somali region. The court ruled it was “very unlikely” that they had entered Ethiopia illegally only to gather news.Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt said they were innocent and should be freed.
