11 Indicted In Alleged Va. Jihad Network

Federal prosecutors yesterday announced indictments against 11 members of what they called a “Virginia jihad network” who are charged with training to work with terrorists to fight for Muslim causes in foreign nations. The 42-count indictment, returned by a grand jury Wednesday and unsealed yesterday in U.S. District Court in Alexandria, charges that the men trained with and fought for Lashkar-i-Taiba, a group that is trying to drive India from Kashmir and has been named a terrorist organization by the U.S. government. Federal agents arrested six of the men yesterday in raids in the Washington suburbs and in Pennsylvania. Two were in custody as part of the investigation that began in 2000, and three are living in Saudi Arabia.
