RIVERSIDE, Calif. - Two California men were sentenced Monday to 25 years in prison for conspiring to support terrorists and kill Americans overseas, federal prosecutors said.

Sohiel Omar Kabir and Ralph Deleon were convicted in September after prosecutors showed they were disciples of radical Islam who had rounded up two other men to train with the Taliban and eventually graduate to the ranks of al-Qaida. A fifth man they believed to be part of their group was an FBI informant who secretly recorded their conversations.
