A US court has sentenced a man to 17 years in prison for plotting to attack the Pentagon and the US Capitol with model aircraft laden with explosives.
Twenty-seven-year old US citizen Rezwan Ferdaus was arrested after a sting operation in which agents posed as al-Qaeda members.
He pleaded guilty in July to attempting to supply materials to al-Qaeda, and seeking to damage US government buildings with explosives.
Under a plea deal, prosecutors agreed to drop four other charges.
