EU Considers Criminalizing Use of Internet by Terror Groups

The EU is considering recommendations to criminalize the use of the Internet by terrorist organizations to "inciting, recruiting and training for terrorism".
"In a memorandum on his proposals [EU Commissioner for Freedom, Security and Justice Franco] Frattini said the Internet served as one of the principal boosters of the process of radicalization and recruitment of militants, as well as "a source of information on terrorist means and methods, thus functioning as a 'virtual training camp'."
