An America jury has convicted a Pakistani-born Canadian of aiding a militant group responsible for the 2008 Mumbai attacks. But the 50-year old Tahawwur Rana was cleared of more serious charges of planning the attack which left more than 160 people dead in the Indian city. He was also convicted of aiding an aborted plot on a Denmark based newspaper. The verdict is due to be announced later and Rana could face up to 30 years imprisonment.
