Azerbaijani Court Sentences Six Accused of Planning Terror Attacks

A court in Azerbaijan has sentenced six men to prison for plotting domestic terrorist attacks.

A court official says weapons were also found in the homes of the six, who have been identified only as followers of the Wahhabi brand of Islam.

The sentences were announced today in Baku after a closed-door court session. The prison terms range from three to 14 years.

The judge is quoted as saying that no details of the case would be released to protect state interests.
