Husband, wife found guilty of threatening terror attacks in Austria, Germany

An Austrian husband and wife were found guilty of involvement in terror threats against targets in Germany and Austria and sentenced to prison terms, the Austria Press Agency reported Thursday. An eight-member jury pronounced its verdicts just before midnight Wednesday. Judge Norbert Gerstberger subsequently sentenced the man to four years and his wife to 22 months in prison. The two were identified only by their first names in keeping with Austrian law - Mohamed M. and Mona S. The 22-year-old man was found guilty of involvement in a March 2007 video threatening Austria and Germany with attacks if they did not withdraw military personnel from Afghanistan and of other similar threats. His wife, 21, was convicted for helping him, mostly by translating Arab texts into German.
