FBI announces terrorism arrest

By  | 

DENVER (AP) -- The Federal Bureau of Investigation has arrested a refugee from Uzbekistan at Chicago's O'Hare Airport on terrorism charges after he was accused of planning to travel overseas to fight on behalf of the Islamic Jihad Union.

The FBI said Monday that 35-year-old Jamshid Muhtorov of Aurora, Colo., who also goes by several other names, was arrested Saturday by members of the FBI's Denver and Chicago Joint Terrorism Task Forces.

The FBI says Muhtorov was indicted on a charge of providing and attempting to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization.

The Department of Justice says Muhtorov made his initial appearance in U.S. District Court in Chicago on Monday.
