A Bosnian-born U.S. citizen was convicted on Tuesday for his role in a 2009 suicide-bomb plot on New York City subways and faces a maximum sentence of life in prison. Adis Medunjanin, 28, was arrested in September 2009 days before he and two co-conspirators had planned to carry out what U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder called “one of the most serious terrorist threats” to the U.S. since 9/11. Medunjanin was also convicted of training with al Qaeda operatives in Pakistan and plotting to kill U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan. His co-conspirators in the subway bomb plot, Najibullah Zazi and Zarein Ahmedzay, both pleaded guilty in trial and testified against him.
