Washington, Fri, 21 Oct 2011 ANI

Washington, Oct 21 (ANI): The United States has charged two men of allegedly helping a Pennsylvania woman known as "Jihad Jane" provide material support to terrorists.

 

Eighteen-year-old Mohammad Hassan Khalid, a Pakistani immigrant from Maryland, and Ali Charaf Damache, 46, an Algerian living in Ireland were charged over conspiracy to support Colleen LaRose, the BBC reports.

 

LaRose, known by the internet pseudonym "Jihad Jane," admitted in February to plotting to kill Swedish cartoonist Lars Vilks, who drew pictures of the Prophet Muhammad with the body of a dog.

 

She is facing a possible life sentence after pleading guilty to four federal charges, including conspiracy to support terrorists.

 

According to the report, Damache could face up to 45 years in prison if convicted, while Khalid could a 15-year term.

 

The indictment said that Khalid met LaRose in an online chat room in 2009, when he was just 15.

 

"This case demonstrates that we must remain vigilant within our communities to make sure that we bring to justice those terrorists, of any age or background, who seek to do great harm to our citizens," said US Attorney Zane Memeger in a statement. (ANI)
