NEW YORK (AP) — A federal appeals court has upheld the conviction of a doctor accused of offering to treat injured al-Qaida fighters.
He had been convicted of conspiring to provide material support to terrorists and sentenced to 25 years in prison.

The resident of Boca Raton had insisted throughout that he was innocent.
