Yemeni Cleric, Aide Convicted in New York
Remember Mohammed Alanssi? The man who set himself on fire outside the White House last November? Although the prosecution dropped Alanssi as the star witness and the defense argued that Sheik Mohammed Ali Hassan Moayad and Mohammed Mohsen Yahya Zayed were victims of an entrapment set up by Alanssi, both Moayad and Zayed were convicted of funneling money to Al-Qaeda and Hamas on March 10.
