SECO fixes an Oopsie!

Swiss authorities mistakenly listed two counter terror entities as individuals (how embarrassing!), so today they fixed it by removing the wrong ones:

SSID: 10-41406 Foreign identifier: QDe.162 Name: Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP)
Good quality a.k.a.: a) Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant – West Africa (ISIL-WA) b) Islamic State of Iraq and Syria – West Africa (ISIS-WA) c) Islamic State of Iraq and Syria West Africa Province (ISISWAP) d) Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant – West Africa Relation: a) Associated with the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant listed as Al-Qaida in Iraq (QE.J.115.04., SSID 10-17311) b) Formed in March 2015 by Abubakar Mohammed Shekau (QI.S.322.14., SSID 10-28071) c) Splinter group of Jama’atu ahlis sunna lidda’awati wal-jihad (QE.B.138.14., SSID 10-27821, Boko Haram) Other information: Committed terrorist attacks in Nigeria.

and adding the right ones:
