The Associated Press reports a radical Muslim organization in Belgium was a well-structured terror group that brainwashed youngsters and sent them to fight in Syria, prosecutors said Monday as a trial started for dozens of suspects. Only eight of the 46 suspects of the Sharia4Belgium group were present for the trial's opening, and a ninth appeared after a lunch break. Many others are believed to be fighting in Syria or to have died in the country's civil war. The group's alleged leader, Fouad Belkacem, who is in custody, was led into court by armed guards. He listened in silence to prosecutor Ann Fransen as she said that leading a terror organization has a maximum sentence of 15 to 20 years.
