Bosnian immigrant Adis Meunjanin was found guilty on Tuesday of plotting to bomb New York’s subway system as an Al-Qaeda terrorist.
Meunjanin, who will be sentenced on September 7, was convicted of conspiracy to use weapons of mass destruction, conspiracy to commit murder, and supporting a foreign terrorist organization. A Pakistani friend and an Afghani friend plead guilty to planning the attack, and testified against him.
During the trial, Meunjanin was portrayed as a passionate believer in Jihad, who travelled with his two friends to Pakistan in 2008 in order to join the Taliban. However, the group was recruited by Al-Qaeda in to perform a suicide mission in America.
