AKTOBE, Kazakhstan -- An Aktobe Province court has convicted seven residents of the province of establishing a terrorist group and of plotting attacks abroad, the Aktobe Province Inter-district Specialised Criminal Court's press office said in a statement Friday (January 6).
The group was plotting to strike nightclubs and shopping and entertainment centres, the court found.
The defendants' sentences ranged from six to nine years. Some of them were juveniles attending high school.
The stimulant, administered in pill form, has reportedly been sanctioned by the 'Islamic State' as a means to facilitate 'jihad' as it gives fighters stamina.
Do you think your government has taken adequate steps to protect you against potential terrorist attacks?
