CHICAGO — A Canadian-Pakistani citizen who owns several businesses in Chicago was found guilty Thursday of helping a terror plot in Denmark and supporting a militant group in Pakistan.

However, he was acquitted of the more serious charge of conspiracy “to provide material support” to the attackers of Mumbai, India in 2008.
