Swedish Muslim group rejects 'terror' label
by Maddy Savage
The Islamic Association of Sweden says it was "shocked" to be included in a list of groups labelled as terrorist organizations by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) over the weekend.
Around eighty extremist groups were listed by the UAE, with Islamic organizations in Sweden, Norway and Denmark featured alongside the likes of the Islamic State (Isis) and al-Qaeda.
The Islamic Association of Sweden's chairman Omar Mustafa said it was "frightening that a small regime known for human rights abuses defines European civil society organisations as terror groups".
