LUXEMBOURG (Reuters) – EU states agreed on Friday on tight laws against incitement to terrorism in order to clamp down on militant groups’ use of the Internet.
EU justice and interior ministers also agreed in Luxembourg on an action plan to try to stop groups getting explosives.
Police say the Internet has taken on huge importance for militants, enabling them to share know-how, plan operations and spread propaganda to a mass audience.
“The Internet is used to inspire and mobilize local terrorists … functioning as a virtual training camp,” a text agreed by ministers said.
“Each member state shall take the necessary measures to ensure that terrorist-linked offences include … public provocation to commit a terrorist offence, recruitment for terrorism, training for terrorism.”
