Ghailani guilty on one count

Jury decides former Guantanamo jail inmate did not know of plot to bomb US embassies in Africa in 1998.

    The first detainee in the US-run prison in Guantanamo Bay to be tried in a civilian court has been found not guilty on all but one of 286 terror charges.

    Ahmad Ghailani was accused over the 1998 al-Qaeda bomb attacks on US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania that killed 224 people.

    He was found guilty of conspiracy to damage or destroy US property, and for that he will face at least 20 years in jail.
