[efoods]A jury convicted a 23-year-old man on terrorism-related charges Wednesday after a trial in Atlanta.
Ehsanul Islam Sadequee was found guilty on several charges, said Patrick Crosby, a spokesman for the U.S. attorney’s office in Atlanta.
In June, a federal judge convicted Sadequee’s accused co-conspirator, Syed Haris Ahmed, of conspiring to provide material support to terrorism in the United States and abroad. Ahmed was then a student at Georgia Tech.
FBI Special Agent Mark Richards testified during Ahmed’s trial that Ahmed and Sadequee traveled to Canada in March 2005 to meet with three other men they met online.
During that meeting, Ahmed said that they “should attack oil storage facilities and refineries,” according to a statement signed by Ahmed.
