OTTOWA — A Canadian court on Friday sentenced twin brothers to a combined 24 years in prison after they plead guilty to terror-related offenses, including trying to leave the country to join the Daesh terror group.

Ashton Larmond, 25, was sentenced by an Ontario Superior Court to 17 years in prison minus time already served for giving instructions to carry out an activity for an extremist group, public prosecutors said.

His brother, Carlos, was given seven years minus time served for attempting to leave Canada to participate in a militant group. Carlos was arrested at the Montreal airport in January 2015 as he was trying to leave Canada. His brother and a third man, Suliman Mohamed, 23, were arrested shortly later.

Mohamed was also sentenced on Friday to seven years minus time served for conspiring to participate in the activities of a militant group.

The prosecutor in the case said Ashton directed plans to join the Daesh group in Syria or kill people in Canada, and described him as more of an organizer than his brother, the Canadian Broadcast Corporation reported. Both brothers, as well as Mohamed, will be ineligible for parole until they have served half of their sentences.
