Jordan's military court convicted four Palestinians in two separate plots to attack US forces in Iraq and sentenced them Wednesday to jail terms ranging between three and four years. In the first plot, Eyad al-Aswad, 34, and Ammar al-Faluji, 19, were found guilty of plotting terrorist attacks in Iraq. Three other men, all Palestinians, were acquitted for lack of evidence. In the second case, the court found Moussa Khader Ramadan, 23, and Munther Mahmoud Saadeh, 24, also had conspired to commit terrorist acts in Jordan's violence-wracked eastern neighbor. It sentenced each to four years in jail. The court did not say if any of the men were members of al-Qaida in Iraq, the terrorist organization led by Jordanian-born Abu-Musab al-Zarqawi. Wednesday's guilty verdicts can be appealed.
