Verdict due in Sharia4Belgium terror trial

A Belgian court is due to return the verdicts of 46 people accused of belonging to a Belgian Islamist group that sent young Muslim men to fight in Syria.

Prosecutors have accused members of Sharia4Belgium of being part of a terrorist organisation.

Only eight of the accused will be in court in Antwerp for the ruling. The rest are said to be in Syria, or dead.

Duncan Crawford reports from Antwerp.
