“A Serbian court has sentenced seven people to long prison terms after convicting them of sending money to the Islamic State (IS) and Al-Nusra Front extremist groups and of organizing fighters to join the fighting in Syria.

The Belgrade High Court on April 4 handed down prison sentences of between 7 ½ and 11 years to the seven Muslim defendants.

Three of them remain at large and were sentenced in absentia.

Another one has reportedly been killed in Syria, but that has not been confirmed.” (RFE/RL)
