Two Saudi men were imprisoned and banned from travel for being involved in terrorist activities in Yemen. The penal court said one man was sentenced to two years and six months in prison and banned from travel for five years after his release for entering and exiting Yemen illegally and not telling authorities that his brother and sister’s husband had entered the neighboring country to be trained by Al-Qaeda.

The other man, who was the brother-in-law, was sentenced to three years in prison and banned from travel for five years for entering and exiting Yemen illegally several times and for contacting a Yemeni from Al-Qaeda. The court also reported that the first defendant has filed an appeal but the second has accepted his sentence.
