VIENNA – An Austrian court has found four people guilty of terror-related crimes and sentenced them to prison terms of up to six years.
The court in the eastern city of Graz found a man guilty of persuading others to fight for radical groups in Syria while he was a preacher at a mosque. He received the six-year term.
Two other men were convicted Monday of fighting for the Islamic State group and given five-year terms. A woman who wanted to join radicals in Syria with her three young children was sentenced to 14 months in prison, with a month suspended.
