Quebec terrorist sentenced to life

Recruiter targeted European countries involved in military operations in Afghanistan


Said Namouh, the Moroccan-born Quebec resident who was convicted of four terrorism charges last October, has been sentenced to life with no chance of parole for ten years in a Montreal courthouse. Namouh—who’s list of convictions includes conspiracy to detonate an explosive device, participating in a terrorist act, facilitating such an act and committing extortion for a terrorist group—was involved with the Global Islamic Media Front, an organization that has ties to al-Qaeda, and in a plot to detonate bombs in European countries involved in the war in Afghanistan. The judge presiding over the case said Namouh remains dangerous and is remorseless for his actions.
