COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A federal judge wants details settled in about two months for handling classified information in the case of an Ohio man charged with plotting a U.S. terror attack.
The information relates to charges against Columbus resident Abdirahman Sheik Mohamud (ab-dee-RAH’-mahn shayk moh-HAH’-mud). He’s accused of receiving terrorism training on weapons, combat and tactics in Syria, then returning to the U.S. with a plan to attack a military base or a prison.
Judge James Graham on Friday ordered prosecutors to finish its review of classified documents and file for the information to be covered by a protective order by Aug. 10.
The 23-year-old Mohamud has pleaded not guilty to charges of supporting terrorism, supporting a terrorist group and making a false statement involving international terrorism.
