Al-Qaeda operative Ali Charaf Damache was sentenced to 15 years’ imprisonment by a U.S. court for his role in recruiting other radicals in a plot to assassinate Swedish artist Lars Vilks.

The 53-year-old radical Islamist was found guilty after a drawn-out process that spanned nearly a decade for attempting to recruit like-minded jihadists from the United States and Europe to kill Vilks, who became famous as one of the artists involved in the 2007 Mohammed cartoons controversy, Swedish broadcaster SVT reports.

The article goes on to state the following:

The plot to kill the Swedish artist began in 2009 and saw three U.S. citizens arrested including a 46-year-old from Philadelphia named Colleen LaRose who went by the nickname “Jihadi Jane”.

Damache, who was born in Algeria and became a naturalised citizen of Ireland, is said to have recruited and worked with Jihadi Jane and other conspirators in the failed plot to kill Vilks.

Despite his initial pleas of innocence, Damache later pleaded guilty to the charges and was sentenced to 15 years in U.S. prison.
