SEARCH BLOG: TERRORISM
From the BBC:
A French court has sentenced a scientist at the prestigious Cern laboratory to five years in prison for plotting terrorist attacks.
Adlene Hicheur was arrested in 2009 after police intercepted his emails to an alleged contact in al-Qaeda.
The emails suggested Algerian-born Hicheur was willing to be part of an "active terrorist unit", attacking targets in France.That's a little disconcerting thinking about a scientist running around the supercollider yelling, "Allahu Akbar!" Guys like that give Islamists a bad name.
