Va. man expected to plead to helping Pakistani terrorist group with Web propaganda
By The Associated Press

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) ' A Virginia man is expected to enter a plea bargain on charges he helped produce an Internet video for a Pakistani terrorist group.

Twenty-four-year-old Jubair Ahmad of Woodbridge, Va., has been jailed since his September arrest. A plea hearing has been scheduled for Friday in federal court in Alexandria.

Prosecutors allege Jubair produced and uploaded a propaganda video to YouTube last year on behalf of Lashkar-e-Taiba, a militant Pakistani group the U.S. has designated a terrorist group since 2001.

Court documents show Ahmad, who came to the U.S. from Pakistan as a 19-year-old, was the subject of a two-year FBI investigation. An affidavit states he received training from Lashkar while living in Pakistan.

Ahmad was charged with providing material support to a foreign terrorist organization.
