Chicago man guilty of aiding Mumbai attack group

CHICAGO | Thu Jun 9, 2011 6:27pm EDT

(Reuters) - A jury on Thursday found a Pakistani-born Chicago businessman guilty of supporting an Islamic militant group blamed for the 2008 attack in Mumbai but not guilty of the more serious charge of helping plot the attack that killed 166.

The jury also found Tahawwur Rana, 50, a former Pakistan Army doctor with Canadian citizenship, guilty of conspiring to attack a Danish newspaper, a plot that was never carried out.

In the trial, held in federal court in Chicago, a key witness implicated Pakistan's intelligence agency, ISI, in the Mumbai attack.

The witness was Rana's childhood friend, David Headley, who testified that Rana had provided help as Headley scouted targets in India.
