3 convicted in terror plot on Australian army base

Three men who believed Islam was under threat from western nations were found guilty in an Australian court on Thursday of plotting a suicide attack against a Sydney army base.
The men — all Australian citizens of Somali or Lebanese origin — were convicted in Victoria state Supreme Court of conspiring to plot a terrorist attack, and could face life in prison. Two other men were found not guilty of the same charge.
The five men were arrested in pre-dawn raids in the southern city of Melbourne in 2009.
