Two found guilty in Detroit terror trial

The jury also acquitted two others of the same charges in what was the first trial to arise from the security crackdown that followed 9/11. Abdel-Ilah Elmardoudi, 37, of Minneapolis and Karim Koubriti, 24, were found guilty of conspiring to support terrorism and conspiring to commit document and visa fraud. Ahmed Hannan, 34, and Farouk Ali-Haimoud, 22, also of Detroit, were acquitted of the terrorism charge. Hannan was found guilty of visa fraud.
