David Coleman Headley accomplice convicted
« on: January 19, 2013, 09:59:16 am »
A Chicago judge on Thursday handed Tahawwur Rana a 14 year jail term for providing material support to Lashkar-e-Taiba and for conspiring to provide material support for a plot involving attacks on the office of Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten for publishing cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad.

The Assistant Attorney General for National Security Lisa Monaco said in the statement that “as established at trial, Tahawwur Rana provided critical support to David Headley and other terrorists from his base in the United States, knowing they were plotting attacks overseas.”

Rana was childhood friends with Headley and attended the Hasan Abdal cadet college with him.

He ran an immigration office in Chicago and was arrested in October 2009 along with Headley.
