A Jordanian military court convicted four alleged militants Wednesday of conspiracy to kill Americans who worked at a center to train Iraqi police east of Amman. The four, all Jordanians, pleaded innocent at the opening of the trial nine months ago. They were sentenced Wednesday to jail terms ranging between 10 and 20 years with hard labor. In its verdict, the court said the prosecution's allegations against the four were "substantiated with strong evidence, and the court is convinced beyond doubt that the four were involved in a terror conspiracy on Jordanian soil." The guilty verdicts can be appealed.
