An Uzbekistan national pleaded not guilty and said little during his first court appearance Friday on U.S. charges that he gave support, cash and other resources to help a recognized terrorist group in his home country plan a terrorist attack there.
Fazliddin Kurbanov, 30, was arrested Thursday. Prosecutors have said little about the details of their investigation. He was charged after an extensive investigation into his activities late last year and this year.
The Idaho indictment charges Kurbanov with one count of conspiracy to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization and one count of conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists and possession of an unregistered explosive device.
