PORTLAND, Ore. — FBI agents have arrested a Portland man accused of providing material support to a suicide bomber who participated in a 2009 attack in Pakistan that killed about 30 people and injured another 300.

U.S. Attorney Amanda Marshall said 48-year-old Reaz Qadir Khan was arrested Tuesday and charged with one count of conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists. A detention hearing has been scheduled for Wednesday afternoon.

The indictment says Khan provided advice and financial help to Ali Jaleel, one of three people who carried out the suicide attack at Pakistan’s intelligence headquarters in Lahore.

If convicted, Khan faces a potential sentence of life in prison.
