Several hundred people gathered Tuesday night in east Columbus to protest a Missouri grand jury’s decision not to indict police officer Darren Wilson for shooting and killing Michael Brown in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson.
Terrorism Suspect Appears in Federal Court in Columbus
A Columbus man is indicted on charges he provided support to terrorist groups and conspired to blow up U-S government buildings abroad.
The federal indictment, released yesterday, accuses Christopher Paul, 43, of one count of conspiracy to provide support to terrorists, one count of conspiracy to use a weapon of mass destruction, and one count of providing support to terrorists. Paul was in the Franklin County jail last night, after a hearing in U-S District Court in Columbus was postponed until his attorney could be present. The indictment alleges he joined al-Qaida and traveled to Afghanistan to attend a terrorist training camp. Paul is part of a federal investigation that included Iyman Faris, a Columbus man sentenced to 20 years in prison for plotting to topple the Brooklyn Bridge.
