A French court on Wednesday jailed Anne Diana Clain, whose two brothers were notorious propagandists for Islamic State, for nine years for terrorist association.

Paris's criminal courts handed down the sentence to Clain, 44, for having attempted between 2015 and 2016 to head to conflict-ravaged Syria with her husband and four children to join her brothers Fabien and Jean-Michel Clain.

Fabien Clain has been identified as the voice in an audio recording claiming responsibility for the 2015 Paris attacks which killed 130 people and warning that they were just "the beginning of the storm". His brother has also been accused of being an IS propagandist in Syria.

The court also found Clain's husband Mohamed Amri, a 58-year-old Tunisian, guilty and handed him a ten-year sentence as presiding judge Isabelle Prevost-Desprez highlighted the couple's determination to reach Syria.

Anne Clain left France in August 2015 with Amri, their three children and his son from a previous relationship, all four of them minors. She said in testimony that she had hoped to experience an Islamic "utopia" but admitted she had been blind to the ideology of her radicalised brothers and that of the Islamic State group.

The couple's entourage, including their children, burst into tears when sentencing was passed down.

The prosecution had called for ten-year jail terms for both. . . Clain's lawyers said she had renounced those beliefs over the past three years and added she would appeal.
