[JURIST] A French court Tuesday sentenced six to jail terms for an alleged plot to bomb the US embassy in France [official website] in 2001. French-Algerian Djamel Beghal received a 10-year sentence as the leader of the group, while five others all received terms between one and nine years. Beghal testified that a confession he made after being arrested in 2001 had been extracted by torture. The six were convicted for criminal association in relation with a terrorist enterprise. Beghal allegedly hatched the plan with co-defendant Kamel Daoudi while the two spent time at an al-Qaida training camp in Afghanistan in 2001. AP has more.
