A 9/11 terrorist sentenced

A 9/11 terrorist sentenced
A court in Hamburg has sentenced an acquaintance of the leader of the terrorist group which carried out the 9/11 attacks, to 15 years in prison for being an accessory to mass murder.

Moroccan Mounir El Motassadeqa was a member of a Hamburg radical Islamic group representing Al Qaida in Germany.
This is the second conviction after the events of September 11, 2001, which left nearly 3,000 people in the World Trade Center and the Pentagon dead.
