THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — An international court has found a Muslim radical guilty of committing a war crime by overseeing the destruction of historic mausoleums in the Malian desert city of Timbuktu.

Ahmad Al Faqi Al Mahdi, a former teacher, had pleaded guilty and expressed remorse for his role in overseeing the destruction of nine mausoleums and a mosque door in June and July of 2012.

Al Mahdi was convicted Tuesday morning by a three-judge panel of the International Criminal Court in The Hague, Netherlands. Sentencing is expected later in the day.
