Chicago man acquitted in Mumbai attacks, convicted in Danish plot
by Rummana Hussain
It was India's 9/11.
And Chicago businessman Tahawwur Rana was among those ultimately responsible for the flurry of bullets and grenades that showered over Mumbai, prosecutors said.
But on Thursday, a federal jury acquitted Rana of aiding in the 2008 attacks that claimed the lives of over 160 people.
Rana, however, was found guilty of providing material support to the Lashkar-e-Taiba, the U.S. designated terrorist organization that orchestrated the bloody South Asian siege.
The Pakistan-trained doctor was also found guilty in a separate plot targeting a Danish newspaper that printed controversial cartoons of Prophet Muhammad.
