Australian accountant faces terror charges

Australian accountant faces terror charges 01 May 2010 Two men, including a US-Australian dual citizen, have been charged with conspiring to give computer advice, buy wrist watches [LOL!] and do other tasks to help al-Qaeda "modernise." A vaguely worded indictment unsealed on Friday (US time) in the federal court in Manhattan accused Wesam El-Hanafi, who was born in Brooklyn, of travelling to Yemen to meet with unnamed al-Qaeda [al-CIAduh] members in February 2008. The terrorists "instructed him on operational security measures and directed him to perform tasks for al-Qaeda," the indictment says.
