A20 SUNDAY,MAY15,2011ESTLATIMES.COM Federal authorities have charged three members of a Florida family, including one arrested in Los Angeles, in an alleged conspiracy to raise money for weapons to “murder, maim and kidnap” people overseas and bolster the Pakistani Taliban. Three other people in Pakistan, at least two of them related to the Florida family, were also charged. Authorities say thering- leader of the group is Hafiz Khan, a 76-year-old imamat amosque in Miami. He was arrested Saturday by a group of nearly 30 FBI agents who waited until his early-morning services were done before taking him into custody. His 24-year-old son, Izhar Khan, who is a religious leader at a mosque in nearby Margate, Fla., also was arrested. Another son, Irfan Khan, 37,was arrested at 3 a.m. in a hotel room in El Segundo. A U.S. citizen born in Paki- stan, he lives in Miami. The indictment says that he “is a Pakistani Taliban sympathizer who worked with [his father] and others to collect and deliver money for the Pakistani Taliban.” Officials said the suspects raised up to $45,000 and were linked to the Pakistani Taliban, the group that recruited the would-be Times Square bomber in New York last year. The Pakistani Taliban also has been deeply involved in assaults against U.S. interests abroad, such as the December 2009 suicide attack on a U.S. military base in Khowst, Afghanistan, that killed seven CIA U.S. charges 6 with plot to aid Pakistani Taliban The suspects include a father and son who are leaders at mosques in Florida; another son is arrested in L.A.
