New York Synagogue Bombing Suspect Pleads Guilty

A suspect in a plot to disguise himself as a Jew and unleash a bloodbath in Manhattan synagogues and churches pleaded guilty to terror charges Tuesday and will be sentenced next month, authorities said, according to AFP.

The guilty plea by Ahmed Ferhani, 27, "marks the first time a terrorist has been convicted on state terror charges since the New York Anti-Terror Laws were passed shortly after September 11, 2001," Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance said in a statement.
