MONTREAL — A judge sentenced a Canadian resident to life in prison on Wednesday for his role in a terror plot against Germany and Austria.

Said Namouh, a Moroccan who has lived in Quebec since 2003, was found guilty last October of four terrorism-related charges stemming from a plan to bomb targets in Germany and Austria.

Namouh, 37, was arrested in 2007 for his alleged role in making threats in an Internet video which warned that Germany and Austria would be attacked if they did not pull their troops out of Afghanistan.

He was involved with the Global Islamic Media Front, an al-Qaida propaganda group increasingly tied to terrorism operations. Three Austrian citizens of Arab origin were arrested in Vienna in 2007.

Quebec court Judge Claude Leblond said Namouh remains dangerous and remorseless.
