A Danish high court has slammed a 17-year-old girl with an eight-year jail sentence after she was found guilty as charged of planning attacks on two schools in the country, one of them Jewish according to reports.
The girl who was 15-years-old when she was arrested at her home in January last year after acquiring chemicals for making bombs after offering to fight for Islamic State was found guilty of the offences she was charged with.
Before upholding an earlier district court ruling, the district court had initially sentenced her to six years in jail while the prosecutor had called for her to be sentenced to preventive detention indefinitely.
In the month of March this year, authorities in Denmark arrested four suspected ISIS members who returned from Syria at different locations in Copenhagen.
Security operatives believe that the suspects may have been recruited by the militant group Islamic State (IS) in Syria with the aim to committing terrorist violence in the Scandinavian country.
