Padilla Convicted of Terrorism Ties

Related NPR Stories

Jose Padilla was found guilty on all counts at his trial in Miami on charges of supporting violent Islamist extremist groups overseas — including al-Qaida.

Padilla is the U.S. citizen held by the military for 3 1/2 years as an "enemy combatant."

He was once accused of being part of an al-Qaida plot to detonate a radioactive "dirty bomb" in the U.S., but those allegations were not part of his trial.
