BERLIN:– A German militant was sentenced to prison Tuesday on war crimes charges after posing for pictures in conflict-torn Syria with the severed and impaled heads of two government troops. Aria Ladjedvardi, aged 21 and with Iranian roots, received a prison term of two years, handed down by the Frankfurt regional court. The court heard that the man, having been radicalised in Germany, travelled to Syria for at least several weeks in early 2014, where he joined a militant identified only as Vedat V, who remains at large.–AFP
