Ex-Official Faces Terror Charges (washingtonpost.com)
: "As chief of facilities for D.C. public schools, Kifah W. Jayyousi oversaw painting, toilet repairs and other mundane upgrades to aging buildings. But federal agents now say the engineer had a secret life, as a member of a nationwide network that raised money and recruited Islamic militants for conflicts in Bosnia, Chechnya and other places.
Jayyousi, 43, was ordered held without bond yesterday in U.S. District Court in Detroit on charges of conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists and to commit violent acts abroad, officials said. His attorney, William Swor, said Jayyousi simply raised money for charitable activities and plans to plead innocent to the charges."
