Oregon man jailed for aiding Pakistan suicide bomber
A Pakistani-born sanitation worker in the northwestern US has been sentenced to seven years in prison for helping people linked to a suicide attack. The bomber struck Pakistan’s intelligence service headquarters in 2009.
Reaz Qadir Khan, 51, was sentenced to seven years and three months in prison for providing financial assistance to a terrorist responsible for a deadly Islamist suicide bombing in Pakistan in 2009.
More than 30 people were killed and over 300 injured at the attack on the Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) headquarters in Lahore at the time. Al-Qaida released a video with the attacker, Ali Jaleel, claiming responsibility for the bombing, in revenge for Pakistan’s military operations in the country’s northwest.
Khan, who pleaded guilty to being an accessory to the crime in February this year, began conspiring with Jaleel’s family in the Maldives in 2005, helping him with money to attend a training camp and prepare for the strike.
