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.
