A U.S. citizen convicted of receiving training at a terrorist camp alongside Al Qaeda members in his efforts to help overthrow the Somali government was sentenced in Houston to 10 years in prison.

Daniel Joseph Maldonado, 28, a Muslim convert also known as Daniel Aljughaifi and Abu Mohammed, was also fined $1,000.

Maldonado admitted to traveling in December to a terrorist camp in Somalia, where he was trained to use firearms and explosives in an effort to help a group called the Islamic Courts Union topple the government and install an Islamic state. Members of Al Qaeda were present at the camp.
