Swiss indict two men accused of recruiting people for IS

BERLIN (AP) – Swiss prosecutors have indicted two men accused of recruiting people for the Islamic State group.

The attorney general’s office said yesterday that the two face charges of supporting and participating in IS. Both lived in northeastern Switzerland, and their names weren’t provided.

The main suspect, a Swiss-Italian dual citizen, allegedly travelled to IS-controlled territory in Syria and on his return recruited several people for the group. Prosecutors said the other suspect, a dual citizen of Switzerland and North Macedonia, tried to travel to Syria via North Macedonia, where police stopped him.
