Bearded Men Mistaken For Terrorists

Stockholm - A club of bearded men posing for a photograph in the Swedish countryside with their black flag was mistaken for IS militants, prompting a visit by the police, a club member said on Monday.

Andreas Fransson, 32, was with his bearded buddies on Saturday outside the ruins of Brahehus castle in southern Sweden when two police officers turned up.

"They told us that a motorist thought he had seen a gathering of ISIS terrorists," said Fransson, whose Bearded Villains organisation does charity work.
