Man convicted in terrorism case

September 26, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

A Canadian man accused of participating in military exercises and firearms training as part of a group authorities say plotted to storm Parliament and behead the prime minister was found guilty.

The man's attorney says the plot was a "jihadi fantasy" that his client knew nothing about.

He is the first person found guilty under anti-terrorism laws enacted in 2001. He has not been identified because he was 17 when he was arrested in 2006. He is now 20.
