Kosovo prosecutors have filed terrorism charges against two people suspected of supporting or fighting with ISIS in Syria.

A prosecutors’ statement Tuesday said they had accused a woman, identified only as F.Z., as fighting with ISIS group in Syria. She was among 110 Kosovo citizens repatriated from Syria in April.

A man identified as F.Ll. was accused Wednesday of using his Facebook page to encourage people to join terror groups, downloading hate speeches from ISIS and hailing a recent murderous attack in Sri Lanka.

If convicted, the woman could face a prison sentence of more than 15 years and the man up to five years.

Kosovo authorities say 30 of the country’s citizens are still actively supporting terror groups in Syria.
