US: Syrian man gets life in prison for making bomb component

US: a Syrian man was sentenced to life in federal prison for his conspiracy convictions for making circuit boards that were used to remotely detonate roadside bombs in attacks against US soldiers during the Iraq War.

 

US authorities say Ahmed Alahmedalabdaloklah (AL-ah-med-AL-ab-dahl-OK'-lah) made circuit boards that were used to detonate bombs for the
1920 Revolution Brigades, an insurgent group that claimed responsibility for 230 attacks against American soldiers in Iraq from 2005 to 2010.

 

Prosecutors had sought a life sentence for Alahmedalabdaloklah's four convictions, arguing he hasn't shown any remorse for his actions. His attorneys said their client had no prior convictions and complained that co-conspirators haven't been prosecuted for their role in the crimes.
