2 men charged in US with supporting terror attack
MIAMI (AP) - Two men of Pakistani descent have been charged with plotting to provide material support to terrorists and to use a weapon of mass destruction within the United States, federal prosecutors said on Friday.
The men were identified as brothers Sheheryar Alam Qazi, 30, and 20-year-old Raees Alam Qazi.
Both are naturalised United States citizens originally from Pakistan and both were arrested in the Fort Lauderdale area, prosecutors said.
Few details about the plot were provided by prosecutors or outlined in a brief, three-page grand jury indictment. Authorities said the case was not an FBI sting operation but declined any additional comment.
