Alleged Roadside Bomber to Plead Guilty

WASHINGTON (AP) - A Dutch man is expected to plead guilty in
connection with planting roadside bombs to kill American troops in
Iraq.
The case brought against 36-year-old Wesam al-Delaema is the
first prosecuted in the United States against an alleged insurgent
from the war. He was scheduled to enter the plea on Thursday.
The Iraqi-born Al-Delaema traveled to his homeland after the
U.S. invasion, and he and others videotaped themselves planting
remote-control explosives along a road used by U.S. troops. The
explosives did not result in any deaths.
The video was widely shown on Arabic TV stations and seized by
police who raided al-Delaema's house in the Netherlands in May
2005.
