A Danish man identified by the initials A.I. was sentenced by a Lebanese court to three years in prison for his connections to Isis, the terror group also known alternately as the Islamic State or IS.
A.I.’s lawyer, Fawaz Zakaria, confirmed the sentence on Wednesday to the Danish news site dagens.dk.
“He was sentenced to three years in prison for having fought alongside the Islamic State in Syria and for have contributed to an attack in Tripoli in Lebanon that IS was reportedly behind,” Zakaria said.
The Dane has admitted to fighting with Isis in Syria but denied taking part in the Tripoli attack. A.I. has also previously been associated with the group Jabhat al-Nusra, which is connected to al-Qaeda.
