NEW YORK (AP) — An Algerian who became a key witness against his co-conspirators in a plot to blow up Los Angeles International Airport is being sent back to prison for nearly three years.

A judge found Abdel Ghani Meskini broke release rules by having a gun and trying to buy an assault rifle.

Meskini thanked his lawyer but otherwise said nothing as he was sentenced Friday in a federal court in New York City.

Meskini pleaded guilty in 2001 to conspiring to provide material support to terrorists and other charges for his role in the so-called millennium plot. It was thwarted.

Meskini was credited for cooperating with investigators and sentenced to six years in prison. He was freed in 2005 under probation terms that barred him from having firearms, among other conditions.
