Paris, Sept 21 (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 22nd Sep, 2021 ) :A French appeal court on Tuesday increased a jihadist's sentence for his senior role with the Islamic State group in Syria from 30 years to life in prison.
He was deemed a "major risk" to re-offend and still denied some of the charges.
Vilus led the "Al-Muhajireen" (the immigrants) brigade, a squadron that tortured and carried out summary executions.
Among the charges, Vilus was found guilty of taking part in the public execution of two blindfolded prisoners, which was filmed for a propaganda video.
