Two Arrested For Using University Computers For Propaganda

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 3:48 pm

An Algerian and a Moroccan were arrested on suspicion of using the computer system at the University of Geneva to spread propaganda about Islamist militant groups over the Internet, local police said.

A journalist for the German-language newspaper Weltwoche who graduated from the university in Geneva told school officials that the computer system was being used to send hate messages and to make excuses for Islamist terrorist attacks.

The two suspects were known to have used the university’s computers thanks to a code that a student had negligently left lying around.

The two allegedly admitted to visiting some extremist web sites “out of curiosity,” but both denied sending hate messages.
