Six people in the United States have been charged with aiding terrorist organisations.

The are Bosnian natives living in Missouri, Illinois and New York.

The case has alarmed the Bosnian community in St Loius Missouri: “ I have no words to say, I’m really shocked. It’s a shame that somebody puts a mark on the whole community because of their choice, “ said one man.

Two of the group face the additional charge of conspiring to kill and maim persons in a foreign country.
