BOISE, Idaho – An Uzbekistan national living in Idaho is expected to appear in federal court Friday on charges he conspired with a terrorist group on a scheme to use a weapon of mass destruction.
Federal agents raided the Boise apartment of 30-year-old Fazliddin Kurbanov (fahz-LIHD'-ehn kuhr-BAH'-nahf) Thursday after a grand jury issued a three-count indictment accusing him of federal terrorism charges.
The indictment alleges Kurbanov gave money, computer software and other resources to the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan — a designated foreign terrorist group.
He's also charged with helping prepare for the use of a weapon of mass destruction.
Federal prosecutors say any potential threat has been contained by his arrest.
A separate federal grand jury indictment accuses him of taking part in terrorist activity in Utah earlier this year.
