Terror convict of Dominican parents gets 20 years in prison, EFE

New York.- Two Americans, one of Dominican origin, were sentenced Monday to long prison terms for conspiring to travel to Somalia to join an Islamic terrorist group and assassinate their rivals, EFE reports.

Carlos Eduardo Almonte, 27, of Dominican parents, was sentenced to 20 years in prison, while Mohamed Haoud Alessa, 23, was sentenced to 22 years, according to federal prosecutors in New Jersey.

The two defendants had pleaded guilty in March 2011 before Federal Court Judge Dickinson Debevoise, who handed down their sentences in a court in Newark.
