VIENNA (AP) - Austria’s parliament has passed a law outlawing the symbols of the Islamic State group and al-Qaida, as well as creating the possibility of issuing travel bans on minors suspected of seeking to join Islamic radicals in the Mideast.

The law, passed late Wednesday, also foresees stripping residents with dual nationality of Austrian citizenship if they participate in armed conflicts.

The Interior Ministry says nearly 200 people have left to join the fighting in the Middle East since the Syrian conflict started more than three years ago.
