Swedish security police raid mosque in Goteborg

Sweden's security police say they have raided the administrative office of a mosque in the country's second largest city.

Security police spokeswoman Sirpa Franzen says Thursday's raid against the Bellevue Mosque in Goteborg was prompted by prosecutor Agnetha Hilding Qvarnstrom, who heads the investigation against three men arrested on the eve of the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks in the United States.

Franzen declined to say if the raid was connected to the arrests and wouldn't give more details.

The men, of Somali and Iraqi origin, were initially suspected of plotting a terrorist attack, but the charges were later changed to preparing murder.
