Iraqi to plead guilty in terrorism case: US

Federal prosecutors say an Iraqi man charged with supporting terrorism in his native country will plead guilty.



Louisville (US): Federal prosecutors say an Iraqi man charged in Kentucky with supporting terrorism in his native country will plead guilty just hours after a judge was told the government can prove he worked with insurgents to kill US troops.

Stephanie Collins, a spokeswoman for the US attorney`s office in Louisville, said 24-year-old Mohanad Shareef Hammadi is prepared to enter the plea Tuesday afternoon in US District Court in Louisville.

Hammadi was to go to trial on August 28 on 12 charges, including attempting to send material support to a known terrorist organization. A co-defendant, Waad Ramadan Alwan, pleaded guilty earlier and is awaiting sentencing.
US Justice Department attorney Larry Schneider said told the court today there`s proof Hammadi belonged to al-Qaida in Iraq or a group affiliated with al Qaida.
