Milan synagogue and Jewish school plotter jailed

20 May 2013 by CST

The Jewish Telegraphic Agency reports that a 22-year-old Moroccan man, Mohamed Jarmoune, has been sentenced to five years and four months imprisonment for planning terrorist attacks against Milan’s main synagogue and Jewish school.

Italian media said the sentence was more than the four years asked by the public prosecutor. Jarmoune, who has lived in Italy since childhood, was arrested in Brescia in March 2012.

Investigators found documents on his computer analysing the security measures of Milan’s main synagogue. He was also suspected of planning attacks and organizing terrorist groups through internet social network sites.
