(JTA) -- Four men caught in an FBI sting operation were convicted of plotting to blow up synagogues in New York City.

The men, arrested in May 2009, were convicted Monday by a jury in a U.S. District Court in Manhattan of planting bombs at the Riverdale Jewish Center and the Riverdale Temple, both in the Bronx, and of planning to shoot down U.S. military aircraft using surface-to-air missiles.

The bombs and missiles provided by an FBI informant were disabled.
