FBI Seeks Help In Locating Terrorism Suspect

The FBI is asking for the public's help in finding the eighth person in a suspected terrorism ring working out of the Raleigh area.

The feds say Jude Kenan Mohammad has been indicted on charges of conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists.

The 20-year-old Mohammad, and seven other men were indicted on July 22nd.

If anyone has any information about Mohammad should call the Charlotte Field Office of the FBI at 704-377-9200.

Documents say Mohammad is a U.S. citizen and North Carolina resident who went to Pakistan in October 2008 "to engage in violent jihad".

Mohammad's name had been redacted from court papers when the documents were released earlier this month. Prosecutors have said they hope to have Mohammad in custody soon.

The indictment says eight North Carolina men plotted terrorism and traveled over the past three years to Jordan, Kosovo, Pakistan and Israel "to engage in violent jihad."
