PHOENIX (AP) - An Arizona man accused of helping plan an attack on a Prophet Muhammad cartoon in Texas has lost his second bid to get evidence against him thrown out of court.

A judge on Tuesday rejected Abdul Malik Abdul Kareem’s request to bar prosecutors from using against him al-Qaida promotional materials that were found on his laptop and an attached flash drive during a 2012 search of his apartment.

Kareem has said the flash drive wasn’t his.

Two weeks ago, Kareem lost a bid to get evidence thrown out from his police interview two days after the Texas attack.

Authorities say Kareem provided the guns used in the May 3 attack and conspired to provide support for the Islamic State group.

His lawyer has said the case was trumped up.
