Austrian teenager convicted of planning a bomb attack
A 14-year old boy in Austria who planned to join the “IS” and bomb a Vienna train station has been sentenced to two years. The boy downloaded the bomb plans on his PlayStation, prosecutors claim.
The teenager of Turkish origin pleaded guilty to terror charges in front of a Vienna court on Monday.
According to the prosecution, the boy intended to carry out a bombing before going to Syria to join the self-styled “Islamic State” group. He allegedly planned to take part in “jihad” and had made contact with “IS” connections in the Austrian capital.
At the time of his arrest in October 2014, police have said that the boy made “concrete enquiries about buying ingredients” for a bomb, which he intended to detonate “in public places, such as the Vienna Westbanhof,” which is an important rail station in the Austrian capital.
