Iraqi Mullah Faces New Charges in Norway
OSLO -- The Iraqi founder of an Iraqi Kurdish Islamist group Ansar al-Islam is being prosecuted in Norway for inciting terrorist acts, the public prosecutor's office said on Wednesday.
Mullah Krekar, 56, whose real name is Najmeddine Faraj Ahmad, was sentenced to five years in jail in March for issuing death threats against a former government minister and others.
Kregar was found guilty of threatening the life of Erna Solberg, an ex-minister who signed his expulsion order in 2003 because he was considered a threat to national security. (...)
