Belgium's largest terror trial ends with 45 convictions

A judge in Belgium has sentenced the head of an Islamist group to 12 years in prison.

The court in Antwerp said there was no doubt that the group, headed by Fouad Belkacem and calling itself Sharia4Belgium, was recruiting fighters to send to Syria.

It was one of the largest terror trials ever to be held in Europe.
