TOLEDO, Ohio -- An Ohio husband and wife have pleaded guilty to charges they helped finance a Mideast terrorist group.
During a meeting with a federal judge in Toledo, the Akls on Monday pleaded guilty to conspiracy to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization. They had previously pleaded not guilty.
Federal prosecutors said they planned to conceal up to $500,000 and that the money would go to Hezbollah. The U.S. government lists Hezbollah as a terrorist organization and blames it for numerous attacks on Israel.
