    A court in Ethiopia has sentenced two Swedish journalists to 11 years in prison.

    Reporter Martin Schibea and photographer Johan Persson were captured in July after entering Ethiopia's disputed Ogaden province accompanied by rebel fighters.

    The two have been found guilty of helping a rebel group and of entering the country illegally.
