Terror

Jury to begin deliberations in Florida Taliban terror support case

After a nearly two-month trial, jurors are set to deliberate in the trial of an elderly Muslim cleric accused of funneling money to the Pakistani Taliban terrorist group.

The Miami federal court jury was scheduled Tuesday to get 77-year-old Hafiz Khan's case after hearing final arguments from lawyers. The imam at a Miami mosque is accused of conspiracy and support for terrorism by providing about $50,000 to the Pakistani Taliban.

Khan testified he opposes the Taliban and said the money went to family, to support his Pakistan religious school and for business purposes.

The prosecution's case rests on hundreds of FBI recordings of conversations in which Khan praises violent Taliban attacks and disdain for Pakistan's government.

If convicted Khan faces 15 years in prison on each of four counts.
