A Jordanian military court convicted six men Sunday of taking part in a terrorist conspiracy to attack tourists in Jordan and Israeli targets in the West Bank. The court sentenced the six, including one man who was tried in absentia, to prison terms ranging from three to five years. It acquitted two other defendants for lack of evidence. The attacks did not take place as police arrested the defendants - except for the fugitive - in February before they had carried out their plans. The fugitive, Abdul-Mu'ti Abdul-Aziz Abu-Mu'eliq, is believed to be in Syria. The other defendants are Jordanians and Palestinians. Defense lawyer Hamad Emoush said the convictions would be appealed.
