NEW YORK: A Canadian man accused of helping suicide bombers for an attack in Iraq has pleaded guilty.
Faruq Khalil Muhammad ‘Isa, admitted before the court for providing financial assistance to two Tunisian suicide bombers responsible for an attack on US troops in Iraq in 2009. Five Americans and two Iraqis died in the attack.
Faruq Khalil Muhammad ‘Isa moved to Canada as a Kurdish refugee in 1993 and subsequently obtained Canadian citizenship. He was arrested in 2011 in relation to the attack but fought a legal case preventing his extradition to the US.
The Supreme Court of Canada refused to hear his case further in 2015.
A court in New York sentenced him to 26 years in prison and subsequent deportation.
