A Pakistani man extradited from the UK to the US has been sentenced to 40 years in jail for plotting attacks in several countries.
Abid Naseer, 29, was sentenced by a federal judge in New York.
US authorities said he had been part of a plot to attack Manchester, New York City and Copenhagen.
In March, a jury found him guilty of providing material support to al-Qaeda and conspiracy to use a destructive device.
Naseer was arrested in the UK in 2009 along with 11 other men suspected of planning an attack on a shopping mall in Manchester.
No explosives were found but the men were ordered to leave the country. Mr Naseer avoided deportation after a judge ruled it was likely he would not be safe if he returned to Pakistan.
UK officials arrested him again in 2010 at the request of US prosecutors.
In 2013 he was extradited to the US, where prosecutors argued Naseer was part of a broader al-Qaeda conspiracy to attack various Western locations, including the New York subway system and a newspaper office in Copenhagen, Denmark.
