A military court on Sunday found five terrorists, including one fugitive, guilty of plotting terrorist attacks on Jordanian intelligence agents, foreign tourists and upscale hotels here. The men were sentenced to prison terms ranging from 10 years to life. The court said it was "convinced beyond doubt" that the five - including the cell's mastermind, Jordanian fugitive Mohammad Rateb Qteishat - were guilty of conspiring to commit acts of terrorism and illegally possessing explosives. The four defendants in police custody pleaded innocent at the start of their trial last September. On Sunday, they shouted insults at the military judges after the verdict was pronounced.
