    ALEXANDRIA, Va. - An Arab-American college student was convicted Tuesday of joining al-Qaida and plotting to assassinate President Bush.

    The federal jury rejected Ahmed Omar Abu Ali's claim that Saudi authorities whipped and tortured him to extract a false confession.

    Abu Ali, a 24-year-old U.S. citizen born to a Jordanian father and raised in Falls Church, Va., could get life in prison on charges that include conspiracy to assassinate the president and providing support to al-Qaida.
