Florida Imam convicted in Pak Taliban case
. AP, Miami
An elderly Muslim cleric in the US was convicted Monday of funneling thousands of dollars to support the Pakistani Taliban terror organization. Hafiz Khan, the 77-year-old imam at a Miami mosque, was found guilty of two conspiracy counts and two counts of providing material support to terrorists. Each charge carries a potential 15-year prison sentence. Prosecutors built their case largely around hundreds of FBI recordings of conversations in which Khan expressed support for Taliban attacks and discussed sending about $50,000 to Pakistan.
