Strasbourg Suspect Pleads Guilty

One of four Algerian men accused of planning to bomb a market in the French city of Strasbourg has pleaded guilty to the charge. Aeroubi Beandalis apologised for his role in the plot and thanked police for foiling it. Mr Beandalis – along with fellow defendants Fouhad Sabour, Salim Boukari and Lamine Maroni – previously said the group had planned to attack an empty synagogue. The four men were arrested on suspicion of planning to bomb Strasbourg’s Christmas market during the 2000 holiday season. State prosecutors in the German city of Frankfurt, where the trial is taking place, have called for sentences of between 10 and 12-and-a-half years for the four men. All four stood trial for conspiracy to murder and to plant bombs as well as for weapons offences. Full Story
