      Jubair Ahmad plea bargain expected in terror video case

      ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) A Virginia man is expected to enter a plea bargain on charges he helped produce an Internet video for a Pakistani terrorist group.

      Twenty-four-year-old Jubair Ahmad of Woodbridge, Va., has been jailed since his September arrest. A plea hearing has been scheduled for Friday in federal court in Alexandria.

      Prosecutors allege Jubair produced and uploaded a propaganda video to YouTube last year on behalf of Lashkar-e-Taiba, a militant Pakistani group the U.S. has designated a terrorist group since 2001.

      Court documents show Ahmad, who came to the U.S. from Pakistan as a 19-year-old, was the subject of a two-year FBI investigation. An affidavit states he received training from Lashkar while living in Pakistan.

      Ahmad was charged with providing material support to a foreign terrorist organization.
