 A Canadian citizen has been sentenced to 40 years in prison on suspicion of plotting an attack on Times Square


The Canadian citizen, Abdulrahman El Bahnasawy, was born in Kuwait and is 20 years old. He lives in Missouga, Canada.

U.S. prosecutors had hoped that the man would be sentenced to life imprisonment, but the defense argued that Barnazawi was suffering from mental illness and drug addiction and needed treatment, believing that he needed only four to five yearsimprisonment. According to reports, Banasawi was arrested in 2016 and admitted that he had conspired to carry out terrorist acts with extremist group members of the Islamic State, including bomb attacks on Times Square and the subway system in New York City, and large-scale shooting of civilians. Earlier, Barnasavi asked the judge to give him another chance and said he had never been brainwashed by radical information on the Internet, according to the American newspaper Overseas Chinese. But prosecutors say FBI agents sneaked into Barnazawi and his Islamic contacts on the Internet, thwarting the attack. Source: Global Times - Global Network.
