Leader of French Islamist group jailed for nine years
A French court on Friday jailed the leader of a local Islamist group for nine years for "criminal association with a terrorist group."
Mohamed Achamlane, 37, the leader of Forsane Alizza, also called the "knights of pride", was one of 15 members of the group on trial for plotting terrorist attacks.
The accused were arrested in 2012 during a crackdown on radical Islamists shortly after gunman Mohamed Merah shot dead seven people, including three Jewish children.
