Saudi Arabian national and Al Qaeda terrorist Khalid Al Fawwaz has been found guilty of the 1998 bombings of US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania late Thursday, after a New York jury deliberated for three days over the verdict.
The bombing attacks in Nairobi and Dar as Salaam killed 224 people; Al-Fawwaz was arrested in London that same year and extradited to the US 14 years later.
The terrorist likely will face a life sentence, BBC reported.
Preet Bharara, the US Attorney for the Southern District of New York, said in a statement after the verdict that the defendant "played a critical role for al-Qaeda in its murderous conspiracy against America."
Al-Fawwaz was also named as being close to Al Qaeda mastermind Osama Bin Laden and acted as Bin Laden's "media adviser" in London, he added.
