Norwegian man found guilty for ISIS recruiting

Norwegian man found guilty for ISIS recruiting

The Oslo District Court says 31-year-old Arslan Maroof, known as Ubaydullah Hussain, had recruited “at least two people” for ISIS.
Hussain is a former leading member of a local extremist group.

He had been acquitted earlier of multiple counts of encouraging others to commit murder and acts of terrorism.

The court also handed down Tuesday a 34-month sentence to Simen Johan Andreassen, for violating Norwegian laws by intending to join the extremists.

Both were arrested June 8, 2015, in neighboring Sweden. European states have been seeing a number of their citizens attempting to join terrorist groups in the Middle East over the past few years.
