Sweden: two men charged for plotting terror attacks

Swedish prosecutors have filed terror charges against two men accused of plotting suicide attacks in Somalia.

Investigators say the men, aged 22 and 26, belonged to the Somali al-Qaida-linked insurgent group al-Shabab.

They were charged Friday at the Goteborg District Court in southwestern Sweden for plotting to commit suicide attacks causing “widespread destruction.”

The younger suspect is a Swedish citizen, while the nationality of the other was not clear.

Police arrested them in May and June as part of an investigation into Somalia-linked terrorism activities in the Nordic country.
