Man who planned to bomb Los Angeles airport to receive sentence.
A man convicted of planning to bomb Los Angeles International Airport on the eve of the millennium is to be sentenced.
The sentencing of Ahmed Ressam, who was convicted of plotting to bomb the US airport, has been postponed several times to ensure that he cooperated in other terrorist investigations, reported The Associated Press. The sentencing has now however been set to 27 April and according to the federal prosecutor Mark Bartlett the date is 'set in stone'.
Ressam was caught in December 1999 as he attempted to smuggle explosives into the US and was convicted on nine charges in April 2001.
