A Texas man went to Pakistan to train with al-Qaida to kill American soldiers in the Middle East, the federal government claims in a newly unsealed complaint.

Muhanad Mahmoud Al Farekh was arrested in Pakistan and secretly flown to the United States. He was charged with conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists in a sealed complaint filed in early January. It was unsealed Thursday.

Farekh was deported from Pakistan to the United States before he could carry out his plans, the government said.

Farekh, Ferid Imam and an unnamed alleged co-conspirator left Canada for Pakistan in 2007 to fight American forces, according to the complaint and affidavit in support of application for an arrest warrant.
