Austria: Chechen jihadist sentenced to five years

A court in Krems, Lower Austria has found a man of Chechen origin guilty of being involved with Islamic State (Isis) fighters in Syria and sentenced him to five years in prison.

The 30-year-old man, who has Russian citizenship and is an asylum seeker, was also found guilty of possessing pornographic images of minors.

His pre-trial detention period of 11 months will be counted as part of his five year sentence, the judge said.
