Swedish journos found guilty of terrorism
Addis Ababa - A court in Ethiopia has found two Swedish journalists guilty of supporting terrorism.
A judge said on Wednesday it was "very unlikely" the Swedes entered Ethiopia illegally with armed rebels in order to gather news.
Judge Shemsu Sirgaga said the Ogaden National Liberation Front, a rebel group regarded by Ethiopia as a terrorist group, organised the Swedes' journey starting in London via Kenya and Somalia into Ethiopia.
Ethiopian troops captured Johan Persson and Martin Schibbye six months ago during a clash with rebels in Ethiopia's restive Somali region in the country's east, a no-go area for reporters.
Persson and Schibbye are charged under Ethiopia's anti-terrorism law and face up to 15 years' imprisonment. The court will sentence the two next week.
