A Swedish court on Monday sentenced two men to life in prison for "terror crimes" in connection with two murders committed in Syria in 2013, the court announced.

Hassan al-Mandlawi, 32, and Al-Amin Sultan, 30, both Swedish nationals, were in the court in southwestern Goteborg for the sentencing over their role in the April 2013 decapitation of two people in Syria's second city of Aleppo.
