Uzbekistan national living in Idaho to appear in court Friday on federal terrorism charges

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.
