Spanish court jails ex-Guantanamo inmate

A Spanish court jailed a former Guantanamo Bay inmate for 11 and a half years Wednesday after convicting him of leading a recruitment cell that sent jihadists to fight in Syria. The National Court sentenced Lahcen Ikassrien, a 48-year-old Moroccan, to 10 years in prison for leading a terrorist organisation and one year and six months for falsifying an official document. After being extradited to Spain from Guantanamo Bay in 2005, he was found to have led a cell from Madrid that dispatched recruits to Syria for the Islamic State and the Al-Nusra militant groups.
