Conviction could limit Hezbollah in EU

BERLIN — In a decision that could have significant repercussions for Hezbollah’s operations in Europe, a court in Cyprus found a man guilty Thursday of participating in a plot to attack Israeli tourists on vacation on the Mediterranean island, part of a conspiracy similar to a deadly bombing last July in Bulgaria.

The court found the man, Hossam Taleb Yaacoub, a dual Swedish-Lebanese citizen, guilty on five out of the eight charges, including participation in a criminal organization. The three others were conspiracy charges, which the head judge said in the ruling were already covered under the five counts. Yaacoub will be sentenced at a separate hearing.
