KARAGANDA, Kazakhstan -- A court in Karaganda sent a 30-year-old woman to prison for nine years for attempting to join the "Islamic State" (IS) in Syria, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty reported Tuesday (February 6).

The suspect -- identified only as Zhansaya, her first name -- was arrested in September and planned to work as a nurse for IS militants in Syria. She also tried to persuade a teenager to join IS, according to prosecutors.

The Karaganda Inter-District Specialised Court Tuesday found her guilty on both charges.

Hundreds of Kazakhstani citizens have fought alongside militants in Syria, according to authorities in Astana.
