A federal judge is set to pass sentence on a pair of Iraqi nationals who pleaded guilty to conspiring to send weapons, cash and explosives to al-Qaida in Iraq.

 

U.S. District Judge Thomas B. Russell will conduct the hearing at noon CST Tuesday in federal court in Bowling Green for 30-year-old Waad Ramadan Alwan and his co-defendant, 24-year-old Mohanad Shareef Hammadi.

 

Alwan pleaded guilty in December 2011. Hammadi bypassed a trial and entered a guilty plea in August.

 

The two men had faced charges of trying to send a variety of weapons, including rifles, rocket-propelled grenades and Stinger missile systems, along with other explosives and cash to the terrorist organization in Iraq.
