A lawyer in Ethiopia said that a judge has found a group of three journalists, a politician and one other person guilty of conspiring to commit acts of terrorism, AP reported.
The five were arrested in June under Ethiopia's controversial anti-terrorism laws. Ethiopian government spokesman Shimeles Kemal had said the five were involved in planning attacks on infrastructure, telecommunications and power lines.
Alemu Gobebo, a private lawyer and a father of one of the defendants, said Thursday that the five were found guilty. They could face the death sentence. Sentencing will be on Jan. 26.
