Four in New York bomb plot trial found guilty

• Reuters

A federal jury found four men guilty on Monday of placing explosives outside New York synagogues and plotting to shoot down military aircraft.

The four, arrested in an FBI sting operation in May 2009, face the possibility of life in prison following their trial in Manhattan federal court.

Defense lawyers said their clients were improperly lured into the case by an overzealous paid government informant and said they would likely appeal following a trial that was closely watched as a test for the entrapment defense.
