Mondo, CNN

The US broadcaster CNN has placed Bosnian-born Adis Medunjanin ninth out of tenth place on a list of "top terror takedowns of 2012".

Medunjanin, 28, who was born in Bosnia but grew up in Queens, New York, was an al-Qaeda operative tasked by senior external operations leaders in Pakistan with blowing up the New York subway.

The Bosnian was a co-conspirator with terror suspect Najibullah Zazi and was just days away from carrying out his plot before authorities stopped it.

Medunjanin was charged with conspiring to use weapons of mass destruction, among other charges, and was sentenced to life in prison on November 16.

The list compiled by CNN also includes: Fahd Mohammed Ahmed al-Quso, one of the most wanted terrorists in Yemen;  Badruddin Haqqani, a son of the Haqqani Network founder and Zulkifli bin Hir, a man whose capture was worth $5 million to the FBI.
