NEW YORK - A Saudi Arabia-born man was convicted on Thursday of participating in a 2003 attack in Afghanistan that killed two US servicemen and plotting to bomb a US embassy in West Africa, federal prosecutors in Brooklyn said.
A jury found Ibrahim Suleiman Adnan Adam Harun, known by the nom de guerre Spin Ghul, guilty of all counts after only two hours of deliberations. He faces life in prison at his sentencing.
Harun was not present in court for the trial. Since his extradition from Italy in October 2012, he has insisted he is a "warrior" who should face a military tribunal rather than criminal proceedings.
