TWO TERRORISTS FROM IRAQ CONVICTED IN SWEDEN

In the news: Iraqi pair jailed for terror plots.

A Stockholm court has convicted two Iraqis of plotting and financing a massive suicide bombing campaign in their home country and sentenced them to long prison sentences and deportation.

Ali Berzengi, 29, and Ferman Abdulla, 25, were found guilty of "receiving and transferring large sums to the terrorist organization Ansar al-Islam with the aim that the money be used for terror crimes," the court ruled. (TheLocal.se, 05/12//05.)
