Mohammed Warsame, a 35-year-old terror suspect who has been held in solitary confinement by the US for more than five years, has pleaded guilty to conspiring to provide support and resources to al-Qaeda. US Attorney Frank Magill Jr. announced the guilty plea Wednesday in a news release. Authorities have said Warsame, a Canadian of Somali descent, once dined with Osama bin Laden, fought with the Taliban and attended training camps in Afghanistan and Pakistan. The remaining charges against Warsame will be dismissed as part of a plea agreement.
