Two Muslim clerics in the US who were arrested on suspicion of being involved in terrorism have been convicted for money laundering, Israel Radio reported early Wednesday morning. The two were arrested in New York some two years ago in an undercover operation, in which a federal agent impersonating an arms dealer asked to launder some money he had supposedly received from the sale of a shoulder missile meant for use on a Pakistani diplomat.
