A former Guyana parliament member was sentenced to life in prison Wednesday after he was convicted of plotting to detonate explosives at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York.
Abdul Kadir is one of four people who faced charges in a 2007 plot to explode fuel tanks and the fuel pipeline under the airport, according to a statement from the U.S. Eastern District Court of New York.
“The sentence imposed on Abdul Kadir sends a powerful and clear message,” U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch said. “We will bring to justice those who plot to attack the United States of America.”
