A Canadian man has been convicted of two terrorism-related charges in an alleged plot against targets in Canada and abroad.

A jury on Friday convicted Misbahuddin Ahmed of conspiring to knowingly facilitate a terrorist activity and participate in activities of a terrorist group.

Ahmed faces a maximum sentence of 14 years for the conspiracy charge and life in prison for the explosive device count.

Ahmed was arrested in 2010. He had pleaded not guilty to the charges.

He and two alleged co-conspirators were charged with trying to raise money to support a violent uprising and to make and use explosives against targets in Canada. Police say they moved in on the men to prevent them from sending money to terror groups in Afghanistan.

All arrested are Canadian citizens.
