Sweden releases man wanted by Russia on terror-related crime

STOCKHOLM (AP) " Swedish prosecutors have released a 36-year-old man who was arrested at Stockholm's airport on a Russian warrant as he was about to leave Sweden.

Prosecutor Ronnie Jacobsson initially said the man was suspected of terror-related crimes in Russia but later released him after questioning.

In a statement, Jacobsson said there were no grounds to keep the man in custody. He declined to identify the man or specify the charges against him.

Jacobsson said the man was arrested Friday morning at Arlanda airport during a stopover because his name appeared on the Interpol's wanted list.

Jacobsson says the man holds several citizenships, including Russian. He says the man was heading to another country which he refused to identify.
