OTTAWA - Former Ottawa hospital technician Misbahuddin Ahmed has been found guilty of two terrorism-related charges, but has been acquitted on a third more serious count.

Ahmed was convicted of conspiring to knowingly facilitate a terrorist activity and participation in the activities of a terrorist group.

The 30-year-old was found not guilty of possession of explosives with intent to do harm.

A jury delivered the verdict today after two days of deliberation.

Ahmed faced a maximum sentence of 14 years in prison on the conspiracy charge and life in prison for the explosive device count.

He and two alleged co-conspirators were charged following a top-secret RCMP security operation dubbed Project Samossa.
