A Norwegian court has handed prison terms to two men convicted of joining Islamic State militants in Syria and third man found guilty of providing logistical support. In the first case of its kind in Norway, Djibril Abdi Bashir, 30 and Valon Avdyli, 28, were sentenced to over four years in prison for joining the IS group.
The latter's 25-year-old brother, Visar Avdyli, was sentenced to seven months for acquiring equipment for a third brother who was killed while fighting for ISIS. The three defendants, all Norwegian citizens, pleaded innocent during the trial in Oslo. Their lawyers told news agency NTB they would appeal.
