A Danish court on Friday convicted a Palestinian immigrant, an Iraqi Kurd and a Danish convert to Islam of plotting a bomb attack in one of Denmark's most high-profile terror cases. A fourth defendant was acquitted in the case, which stemmed from a 2006 anti-terror sweep prompted by tips from an informant who infiltrated the group. A jury in the Eastern High Court in Copenhagen handed down guilty verdicts to Mohammad Zaher, 34, Ahmad Khaldhadi, 22, and Abdallah Andersen, 32. Riad Anwer Daabas, 19, was acquitted. Zaher and Khaldhadi, described as the two most active, were each sentenced to 11 years in prison by a three-judge panel, while Andersen was given a four-year sentence. The court ordered Khaldhadi to be expelled from Denmark after he serves his time.
