Jordan sends 6 to jail for waving IS flags at wedding


A court in Jordan ordered 6 men jailed for waving the Islamic State group’s flag and singing jihadist slogans at a wedding. The state security court sentenced 2 defendants to five years in prison while the other 4 were sentenced in absentia to 15 years, after they failed to show up for trial. The defendants were arrested shortly after the wedding in September in the northern city of Irbid. The indictment said the defendants had adopted an extremist ideology and had distributed propaganda at religious centres in Irbid, which is close to the Syrian border. Jordan last year joined the US-led coalition carrying out air strikes against IS positions in Syria and Iraq.
