A verdict came down earlier in the NATO 3 trial. The Chicago Sun-Times has some of the details:

Three out-of-town activists have been convicted of mob and arson charges but found innocent of all terrorism charges.

In a rebuke of the central theme of the prosecution’s case, a Cook County jury delivered its verdict just after 4 p.m. Friday.

The men were accused of making Molotov cocktails they allegedly planned to use in protests during the NATO Summit.

They were also accused of planning to destroy President Barack Obama’s headquarters, Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s home, police stations and a downtown bank.
