A suburban Illinois woman faces possible deportation and prison time after federal officials say she lied about her terrorist past. Federal investigators say Rasmieh Odeh, 66, was convicted in 1969 of participating in the terrorist bombings of a supermarket and the British consulate in Israel.
Only one of the two bombs went off at the supermarket, killing two people and injuring several others. Israel authorities have said the attacks were planned by the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. Odeh was sentenced to life in prison in 1970, but was released 10 years later in a prisoner exchange with the Popular Front. Officials said that Odeh failed to tell U.S. officials of her past when she came to the U.S. from Jordan and became a citizen. She faces up to 10 years in federal prison if convicted, deporation back to Jordan and U.S. citizenship revocation.
