(Reuters) - A Pakistani man accused of taking part in an international al Qaeda plot to attack targets in the United States and Europe is expected to make his first U.S. court appearance Monday afternoon in New York, where he is facing terrorism charges.
Abid Naseer, 26, was extradited on Thursday from Britain to Brooklyn, New York. He is facing up to life in prison on charges including providing material support to al Qaeda and conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction in connection with an alleged plot to bomb a city center in Manchester, England.
The charges against Naseer are also connected to an alleged al Qaeda plot in 2009 to bomb the subway system in New York City, U.S. prosecutors said. Two men, Najibullah Zazi and Zarein Ahmedzay, have pleaded guilty to planning the attacks and a third man, Adis Medunjanin, was sentenced to life in prison after his conviction last year for taking part in the plot.
1. FBI was trying to spread similar lies about me for working on my prosthetic legs, i am not a terrori
I was tortured for almost 3 years by the FBI and their friends only because 85 years old man, Roland Sibens(chicago) convinced them that I am a terrorist. I was tortured for working on my prosthetic legs in the basement. I done absolutely nothing illegal or wrong. They thought that in theory it is possible to hide bomb in them. They saw an opportunity to get famous, so they were trying to torture me till I sign their insane story. They tortured me using more than 100 different torturing methods and trust to me waterboarding is not how they torture nowadays.
