Yesterday, a jury in Oregon found Mohamed Mohamud guilty of trying to detonate a weapon of mass destruction. The 21-year-old Somali-American was arrested in November 2010 when he tried to set off what he believed to be a bomb at a popular tree lighting ceremony in Pioneer Square.
The bomb was a fake, given to him by undercover FBI agents who were running a terrorist sting operation. Mohamud will be sentenced in May and could face life in prison.
April Baer of Oregon Public Broadcasting joins the show to tell us about the verdict.
