British court convicts man of directing terrorism

A British court on Thursday convicted a man of directing terrorism, the first time someone has been found guilty of the crime in England and Wales. Rangzieb Ahmed, 33, was also found guilty of being a member of al-Qaida. His trial at Manchester Crown Court was told Ahmed was part of a three-man cell on an unknown mission. Another man, 29-year-old Habib Ahmed - who is not related to Rangzieb Ahmed - was also convicted of belonging to a terrorist organization. Both face sentencing on Friday. The trial heard that Rangzieb Ahmed gave two diaries to Habib Ahmed that contained details of al-Qaida operatives written in invisible ink.
