Posted: 1/18/2013 | By: Andrew Harris | Bloomberg
A Pakistani-born Canadian was
sentenced to 14 years in prison for helping planners of an
attack on a Danish newspaper that published cartoons of the
Islamic prophet Muhammad.
Tahawwur Rana, 52, was sentenced today by U.S. District
Judge Harry D. Leinenweber in Chicago federal court, where a
jury convicted Rana in June 2011. He was also found guilty of
aiding a Pakistani group the U.S. had designated as a terrorist
organization. He was acquitted of a charge that he helped
plotters of the November 2008 Mumbai attacks that killed about
160 people over three days, including six Americans.
