Kosovo man charged with inciting terror acts

Kosovo prosecutors have charged a suspect for illegally spreading information on the Islamic State terror group in Syria.

A prosecutor's office statement Thursday said that from August last year until January the man, identified only as B.E., had used his social network page to spread photos and other information about the group, "openly supporting their terrorist acts."

He had also posted a photo threatening Kosovo's Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj.

If convicted of inciting terror acts, the suspect may be imprisoned for up to five years.

Kosovo authorities claim no citizens have joined extremist groups in Syria and Iraq in the past three years or so. About 160 Kosovo citizens are still actively supporting the groups there.
