SNIPPET: "The family, originally from Pakistan, immigrated to the U.S. decades ago."

    SNIPPET: "MONTREAL -- Saïd Namouh thought his apartment in Trois-Rivières was an ideal location to plot jihad, far from the prying eyes of anti-terrorism investigators. But the Internet that allowed him to spread hatred from the boondocks also proved his undoing, and on Thursday — largely on the strength of his online activity — the 36-year-old Moroccan was convicted of four terrorism charges. Quebec Court Judge Claude Leblond ruled that far from simply exercising free speech, as the defence had argued, Namouh participated with “zeal and enthusiasm” in the planning of terrorist acts and the distribution of jihadist propaganda.
