U.S. prosecutors have charged an alleged Al Qaeda operative with plotting to kill American diplomats in Nigeria and conspiracy to murder American military personnel in Afghanistan.
Ibrahim Suleiman Adnan Adam Harun, also known as “Spin Ghul,” was captured in 2005. He was extradited to New York City last year and secretly arraigned in federal court in Brooklyn.
An indictment unsealed Wednesday charges Harun with conspiracy, providing material support to Al Qaeda and other counts.
