Police have charged three Czechs of Palestinian descent with terrorism, the news site Idnes reported on Tuesday. They are a radical imam who was active in Prague, and whose activities were monitored by the intelligence service, his brother and sister-in-law.

The latter two reportedly left for Syria some time ago where they joined a branch of Al-Qaida and took part in its military activities. The where-about of the three are currently unknown.

A Czech court earlier sentenced another Czech, who was arrested on his way to Syria to join IS, to six years in prison.
