Uzbek couple to be tried over imam shooting
A man and woman previously cleared as suspects in the attempted murder of exiled regime-critic Obid Nazarov in northern Sweden will now be tried in the Court of Appeal.
The couple are suspected of assisting the man who shot Nazarov in the head in the small town of Strömsund in February 2012. The imam survived the attack, but suffered severe injuries.
The attack is believed to have been politically motivated, with Nazarov's son David claiming it was ordered by the Uzbek regime.
