Feds arrest Idaho man on terror charges
Federal agents arrested an Uzbekistan man in Idaho on ties to terrorism, claiming he provided cash and support to a militant group in his country in order to carry out an attack on unspecified targets.
Fazliddin Kurbanov, 30, was arrested at his Boise apartment on Thursday and is scheduled for his first appearance in U.S. District Court on Friday morning, The Associated Press reported.
His arrest came on the heels of a lengthy investigation, AP said. His charges, AP said: One count of conspiracy to give material support to a foreign terrorist group; one count of conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists; and one charge of possession of an unregistered explosive device.
Mr. Kurbanov also faces a charge in Utah related to distributing information about explosives and weapons of mass destruction, AP reported.
Wendy Olson, the U.S. attorney in Idaho, didn't release details of Mr. Kurbanov's alleged activities — and declined to say if the planned targets were on American soil.
The U.S. attorney's office did say Mr. Kurbanov was in the United States legally, though, AP said.
