The Latest: Life in prison for man for making bomb component

PHOENIX (AP) — The Latest on the sentencing of a Syrian man convicted on conspiracy charges for making circuit boards used to detonate roadside bombs (all times local):

4:25 p.m.

A Syrian man was sentenced to life in prison for his convictions for making circuit boards used to detonate roadside bombs in attacks against U.S. soldiers during the Iraq War.

Authorities say Ahmed Alahmedalabdaloklah (AL-ah-med-AL-ab-dahl-OK’-lah) made circuit boards that were used to detonate roadside bombs for an insurgent group that claimed responsibility for 230 attacks against American soldiers in Iraq from 2005 to 2010.

The case stemmed from a raid a decade ago at a Baghdad apartment where soldiers discovered a large cache of bomb-making materials, though no explosives were found.

Prosecutors say Alahmedalabdaloklah has shown no remorse for his actions, while defense attorneys complained that co-conspirators haven’t been prosecuted in the case.

U.S. District Judge Roslyn Silver says Alahmedalabdaloklah knew the circuit boards were being used in making bombs.

A Syrian man accused of making a component in improvised explosive devices used in attacks against U.S. soldiers during the Iraq War is scheduled to be sentenced on federal conspiracy charges.

Ahmed Alahmedalabdaloklah (AL-ah-med-AL-ab-dahl-OK’-lah) faces up to life at his sentencing hearing Wednesday.

Alahmedalabdaloklah is accused of making circuit boards used to remotely detonate roadside bombs for the 1920 Revolution Brigades.

Prosecutors have said the group claimed responsibility for 230 attacks against American soldiers in Iraq from 2005 to 2010.

Defense attorneys have said Alahmedalabdaloklah never expressed any sentiments against Americans in 12 years of emails that were reviewed by investigators.

The trial was held in Phoenix because authorities say Alahmedalabdaloklah got components for a wireless initiation system used in the IEDs from a company based in Arizona.
