Al Qaeda DVDs may be suspect's

November 10, 2009|Times Wire Reports

Prosecutors asked a federal judge not to grant bail to a Chicago businessman linked to a terrorist plot, saying DVDs linked to Al Qaeda had been found in his home.

Tahawwur Hussain Rana, 48, was charged last month with conspiring to take revenge on a Danish newspaper for publishing unflattering cartoons about the prophet Muhammad.

Prosecutors have alleged that an Oct. 18 search of Rana's home turned up two such DVDs.

The judge could decide Nov. 19 whether to release Rana on bond pending trial.
