LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) ' An Iraqi man charged in Kentucky with trying to funnel weapons and cash to al-Qaida in his home country is scheduled for trial July 30.

U.S. District Judge Thomas B. Russell set the Bowling Green trial date for 24-year-old Mohanad Shareef Hammadi on Wednesday.

Hammadi and 30-year-old Waad Ramadan Alwan were charged in federal court in May with attempting to provide material support to terrorists and terrorists organizations and conspiracy to transfer surface-to-air missile launcher systems. They were in Kentucky as refugees.

Alwan pleaded guilty in December to those charges, as well as conspiracy to kill U.S. nationals abroad, conspiracy to use a weapon of mass destruction against U.S. nationals abroad, and distributing information on how to make and use improvised explosive devices. His sentencing is set for April 3.
