APNewsBreak: Iraqis in Ky. linked to attack zone

Several U.S. soldiers from Pennsylvania plan to attend the Kentucky trial of an Iraqi refugee accused of plotting to help terrorists back home.

The soldiers lost six members of their National Guard unit in two roadside bomb attacks in 2005 and suspect the refugee may have been involved.

Mohanad Shareef is not charged with those battlefield deaths. Instead, he's charged with trying to send weapons and cash back to al-Qaida in Iraq after coming to the U.S.

The trial is scheduled to start Aug. 28. Another Iraqi refugee living in Kentucky, 30-year-old Waad Ramadan Alwan, has pleaded guilty.

Documents reviewed by The Associated Press show Hammadi and Alwan were insurgents in the same area around Bayji, Iraq, at the time the Pennsylvanians were stationed there and hit.
