ISIS-loving, wannabe terrorist student in NY gets 20 years in prison

Munther Omar Saleh, 22, was sentenced to 18 years in prison after pleading guilty last year to conspiring to help ISIS and assaulting a federal law enforcement officer.

An ISIS-loving Queens, new york, a college student who planned the terrorist attacks on the Big Apple landmarks will spend nearly two decades behind bars, federal prosecutors announced Tuesday.

Munther Omar Saleh, 22, was sentenced to 18 years in prison and 10 years supervised release in Brooklyn federal court after pleading guilty last year to conspiring to help the jihadist group and assaulting a federal law enforcement officer.

Saleh, a student at Vaughn College of aeronautics and Technology in Queens, worked with the late British ISIS recruiter Junaid Hussain for the construction of a pressure-cooker bomb, and also discussed potential New York targets with him — including the statue of liberty.

They have also signed up for Saleh’s co-defendant, Fareed Mumuni, the use of a similar bomb in a suicide attack on the law enforcement officials who had been following the couple around.
