Two California men convicted of plotting to support Islamic State

LOS ANGELES - Two men from Anaheim, California, were found guilty on Tuesday of conspiring to provide material support to Islamic State militants, and one of them had attempted to travel to the Middle East to join the extremist group, federal prosecutors said.
A federal court jury in Orange County, south of Los Angeles, returned the guilty verdicts against Nader Elhuzayel and Muhanad Badawi, both 25, after deliberating for just over an hour, capping a two-week trial, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.
In addition to convictions on charges of plotting to provide material support to a terrorist organization, Elhuzayel was found guilty of actually attempting to provide such support and Badawi was found guilty of aiding and abetting those attempts.
