Ahmed Musa Ahmed, an imam accused of preaching radical Islam in the Bulgarian town of Pazardzhik, provided logistic support to two Bosnian Muslims who wanted to cross the Bulgaria-Turkey border, officials say.

The information comes from two border police officials who were interrogated in a trial against Ahmed Musa Ahmed and six other people who allegedly propagated jihadist ideas close to those of the Islamic State (IS) group.

In their words, the two Bosniacs wanted to reach Syria in order to take part in fighting on the side of extremists.

Members of what Bulgaria's prosecution believes was a potenian "IS cell" were detained in end-November of last year in a special operation.
