US mosque leaders say teen talked of jihad
Jacksonville: A 19-year-old accused of travelling to the Middle East to train with terrorists raised the suspicions of people at a Florida mosque when he started talking to other teens about violence.
Parvez Ahmed, the board secretary at the Islamic Center in Jacksonville, said today that Shelton Bell talked to other kids about jihad and the civil war in Syria. The other kids` parents became concerned.
Ahmed says mosque leaders consulted their attorney and then notified law enforcement because they were concerned about Bell`s statements.
A federal grand jury indicted Bell, on charges of conspiring and attempting to provide material support to terrorists. He is being held at the county jail in Jacksonville on unrelated state charges.
