Bosnia introduced jail terms of up to 10 years on Tuesday for any citizen who fights in or recruits for conflicts abroad, seeking to curb departure of young Bosnians to Syria who could return to pose a threat at home.Analysts say some young Bosnians have become radicalised to fight for global causes under the influence of foreign fighters or Mujahideen who came to help Bosnian Muslims fight Bosnian Serbs and Croats during the Bosnian 1992-95 war.Experts say that around 150 Bosnians were confirmed to have left for Syria over the past year, 15 of whom had been reported killed.Bosnia's newly-approved penal law is designed to help prevent or decrease the number of young Bosnians going to fight in Syria.
