PORTLAND, Ore. – A former Portland, Oregon, city worker who provided money to a terrorist who carried out a deadly suicide bombing in Pakistan has been sentenced to seven years and three months in prison.
Reaz Khan pleaded guilty in February to being an accessory after the fact to the 2009 bombing that killed about 30 people and injured an additional 300.
Prosecutors say Khan arranged for Ali Jaleel to receive $2,450 before Jaleel participated in the attack. He also provided financial help and advice to Jaleel's wives after the bombing.
Khan did not speak at Friday's sentencing before U.S. District Judge Michael Mosman.
Mosman said the sentencing presented a challenge because the bombing was horrific, but Khan's knowledge of what Jaleel was planning was murky.
