US man gets 10 years in suicide-bomber plot
A man who pleaded guilty to a plot to attend a Somalia training camp with the dream of becoming a suicide bomber was sentenced Tuesday to nearly 10 years in prison.

 

Shaker Masri, 29, looked calm as a judge imposed the sentence for one count of attempting to provide material support and resources to a terrorist group. "That you were willing to die in harming others is extremely disturbing to this court," US District Judge Sharon Johnson Coleman told him. "There is a need to deter you, people such as Mr. Masri, from this type of behavior." (AP)
