AMMONNEWS - Three men were placed into custody on Monday for charges related to inciting "sectarian and religious conflict and discord, and cursing," according to the Public Security Directorate’s (PSD).

The three men have posted slurs against Christian worshippers as they were performing religious rituals at churches last week, prompting the PSD's Cyber Crimes Unit (CCU) to open a probe into the case and bring the suspects into custody.

The public prosecution issued its verdict today to detain the three men for a week in a correctional center for the charges of the incitement of sectarian and religious conflict, and cursing as the investigation is still underway to identify the identities of other suspects who had taken it to social media to incite sectarian conflict.
