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.
