Judge questions proof in Fla. terror finance case
Judge raises questions about proof against 2 brothers charged in Fla. terror finance case
By The Associated Press

MIAMI (AP) ' A federal judge is raising questions about the strength of the U.S. case against two suspects in a Florida terrorism financing case.

U.S. District Judge Adalberto Jordan said Friday the evidence so far is less than compelling against two brothers charged with helping their father funnel cash to the Pakistani Taliban terror group. Both 37-year-old Irfan Khan and 24-year-old Izhar Khan claim the evidence against them is too week to keep them jailed until trial.

Prosecutors say they have revealed only partial evidence. Jordan ordered a hearing next week to consider more proof before deciding on bail.

Jordan previously denied bail for the men's father, 76-year-old Hafiz Khan.

All three Khans plus three other people in Pakistan face four terror support charges. Each carries a maximum 15-year prison sentence.
