Austrian jihadist recruiter gets eight-year jail term
The 38-year-old was convicted of recruiting for Isis while a 24-year-old
Bulgarian was given seven years after being found in possession of plans for terrorist attacks.
Prosecutors said the older man played “a central ideological role” in a radical religious grouping and had convinced several people to travel to Syria to join Isis.
Among those who prosecutors said left under his influence were two sets of parents who took their nine children to Syria. They subsequently returned to Austria and were themselves convicted.
The younger man convicted on Wednesday had himself originally gone to Syria before returning in 2015.
