San'a, Yemen -- A Yemeni court on Wednesday convicted 32 al-Qaida suspects of planning attacks on oil and gas installations in the country, sentencing them to prison terms of up to 15 years. Four others were acquitted.
Six of those convicted remain at large and were tried in absentia.
The prosecution had charged the group, all from Yemen, with forming an armed gang and planning attacks against oil installations with rocket-propelled grenades in September 2006.

'In absentia' - reminds me that we in Britain have refused in the past to return to Yemen terrorists - even convicted murderers. This is digusting, and has shamed us - and has rebounded very nastily indeed. Yeah - you reap what you sow.
