CHICAGO (AP) - A Chicago businessman has been sentenced to 14 years in prison for providing material support to a terrorist group that staged the 2008 attacks on Mumbai, India, that left more than 160 people dead.

A federal judge sentenced Tahawwur Rana on Thursday in Chicago.

Jurors in 2011 convicted Rana of supporting a never-carried-out plot to attack a Danish newspaper that printed cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad and for supporting the Pakistani group. They cleared him of any direct involvement in that group's attack on Mumbai.

The government's star witness was American Pakistani David Coleman Headley. He had pleaded guilty to laying the groundwork for the Mumbai attacks. He testified to avoid the death penalty and extradition.
