Man from Strasbourg Calls Out “Long Live the Islamic State:” Six Months in Prison

A fifty-four year old man has been sentenced to six months in prison after yelling “Long live the Islamic State,” and threatening to return to the scene with a gun. He was found guilty for “publicly condoning an act of terrorism.” The case dates back to last Monday when the man, who received government financial assistance and had already been charged with threatening public order, became angry. He is “unknown by intelligence services, it is not someone who is in danger of leaving for Syria,” said Stephanie Breton.
