Austria passes anti-terrorism law
Austria's parliament has passed an anti-terrorism law which bans the symbols of the Islamic State group (Isis) and al-Qaeda, as well as creating the possibility of issuing travel bans on minors suspected of seeking to join Islamic radicals in the Middle East.
The law, passed late Wednesday, also foresees stripping residents with dual nationality of Austrian citizenship if they participate in armed conflicts.
The Team Stronach party and the right-wing Freedom Party argued that the law would not be globally enforceable and is not far-reaching enough.
