New York synagogue terror plotter sent to jail

    A man who planned to blow-up synagogues in New York has been sentenced to five years in jail.

    Mohamed Mamdouh pleaded guilty to conspiring to commit terrorism and possessing criminal weapons last year. New York State Supreme Court issued the jail sentence on Friday.

    Mr Mamdouh, a naturalised citizen originally from Morocco, acted as the accomplice to Algerian immigrant Ahmed Ferhani, who was sentenced to 10 years in prison last month.

    The two men had planned to wear clothes worn by Chasidic Jews in order to enter and attack synagogues. They were arrested after buying firearms and a grenade from an undercover detective.
