The latest link of them would be the terror attack at Istanbul Ataturk airport, which leaves at least 36 dead, reported by BBC.

The Star reports that in Malaysia, a graphic designer, Muhammad Saiful Hashim, 35 years old, has been sentenced to 40 months behind bars by a High Court for possessing content in relations to the militant group.

Judicial Commissioner Ab Karim Ab Rahman has commented that the offense was serious, hence Saiful should be punished accordingly.

“The court sees this as a serious offence. Only a prison sentence is suitable.”

Saiful was charged to be in possession of the ISIS-related content — a sticker with an IS logo, a photograph of weapons and an IS flag, along with six counterfeit RM10 notes.

Defence attorney Adi Zulkarnain Zulkafli representing Saiful, said that he only wanted to use the logo as design, and had no further intentions. Hence, he should be given the minimum sentence.

But judge Karim adds that although Saiful had no intention of directly joining the terror group now, with the association, he one day might.

Saiful is currently charged under the Penal Code (Section 130JB(1)(a) for the logo and photograph possession. And under the Penal Code (Section 489C) for the fake notes.

He was found with the items in a house at Kangar on March 22.
