Swedish man set up al-Qaeda camp, US prosecutor says
A Lebanese-born Swedish man attempted to set up an al-Qaeda militant training camp in the United States on the orders of a firebrand Muslim cleric in Britain, a US prosecutor told a US jury on Tuesday.

 

Oussama Abdullah Kassir, 43, who was extradited from the Czech Republic on terrorism charges in 2007, faces multiple charges including supporting al-Qaeda by attempting to set up the camp in rural Oregon from 1999 to early 2000 and later setting up websites on explosives and poisons. (Reuters)
