A BROADMEADOWS man who said he was once ordered to carry out a terrorist car bombing by the Saddam Hussein regime in Iraq has been released on bail pending an appeal against his conviction on child pornography charges.

Mohammad Ali Salih, 45, of Lahinch St, Broadmeadows, was convicted of possessing and making more than 430,000 pornographic images and movies of children.

He was sentenced at Broadmeadows Magistrates' Court yesterday to two years' jail, with a 12-month non-parole period.
