Swedish journalists Martin Schibbye and Johan Persson are on their way home from Ethiopia.

Travelling Back from Ethiopia

The pair were captured in July 2011 by rebels in eastern Ethiopia, accused of supporting terrorism, and sentenced to an 11-year jail term.

The journalists had always denied any offense and stated that they were just doing their job.

The two Swedes were pardoned by Prime Minister Meles Zenawi before his death last month.
