US v. Jabarah, Mohammed Mansour
Manhattan, NY

Al Qaeda

[SDNY] Mohammed Mansour Jabarah was sentenced to life in prison for plotting to bomb U.S. embassies in Southeast Asia. Jabarah became an Al Qaeda operative in 2001 after training in Afghanistan and vowing allegiance to Osama bin Laden. Jabarah was arrested in Oman in February 2002 and deported to Canada. He was later extradited to the U.S. after he agreed to cooperate with authorities. In September 2008, a federal appeals court in New York affirmed Jabarah's sentence to life in prison.
