They were arrested by Counter Terrorism Unit police in country's southeast Hulu Langat district on April 25 last year over conspiracy to attack government buildings, nightclubs and other entertainment outlets, New Strait Times Online reported.

They were found in possession of chemicals and materials used to make explosives. High Court Judicial Commissioner said the offences committed by the accused were serious and the court has a duty to meet out a sentence that would deter others from committing the same offence.

The court was awaiting a probation report for another underage accused, who was also found guilty of the charge, before meting out the sentence.
