SNIPPET: "Two brothers of Kurdish origin are being prosecuted by the Swiss authorities on charges of being involved via the internet with an Islamic terrorist group linked to al-Qaeda.

The asylum seekers are accused of setting up internet platforms that were designed to attract new members to the recently formed terrorist organisation, issue propaganda, pass on messages to the al-Qaeda network and disseminate details of terror attacks.
 
In addition, the brothers are alleged to have downloaded videos of executions and stored them on their computers.
 
According to the Swiss Federal Prosecutor's Office, the unnamed terrorist organisation was headed by Kurdish extremist cleric Mullah Krekar, who is currently being held in prison in Norway for unrelated offences.
 


The primary objective of the newly formed group was to raise new recruits to the al-Qaeda network via a series of online chat rooms, according to prosecutors."
