BERLIN — German federal prosecutors said they have charged eight people with supporting al-Qaida and other terrorist organizations by allegedly spreading propaganda on the Internet Tuesday.

The suspects, aged between 17 and 30, were members of the German section of the Global Islamic Media Front, the federal prosecutors said. The charges were filed in a Munich court on September 22. There was no immediate word on when a trial might open.

Authorities say the group used blogs and Internet forums to spread propaganda, some of which was aimed at securing new members or supporters for al-Qaida. The alleged offenses were committed between August 2006 and March 2008.
