Terror Indictment Filed Against Seven in N.C.

A federal grand jury in North Carolina indicted seven people on terrorism charges, alleging that North Carolina resident Daniel Boyd is a veteran of terrorist training camps in Pakistan and Afghanistan who, along with six others (including, apparently, two of Boyd's children), conspired to commit violent jihad in support of terrorism, by murdering, kidnapping, maiming and injuring people.

According to federal prosecutors, Boyd also conspired with other North Carolina residents to travel to the Gaza Strip in 2007 and introduce his son Zakariya  to people in Gaza "who also believed that violent jihad is a personal obligation on the part of every good Muslim."

The terror indictment charges the following people:

    • Daniel Patrick Boyd, 39, a U.S. citizen and resident of North Carolina
    • Hysen Sherifi, 24, a native of Kosovo and a U.S. legal permanent resident located in North Carolina
    • Anes Subasic, 33, a naturalized U.S. citizen and resident of North Carolina
    • Zakariya Boyd, 20, a U.S. citizen and resident of North Carolina
    • Dylan Boyd, 22, a U.S. citizen and resident of North Carolina
    • Mohammad Omar Aly Hassan, 22, a U.S. citizen and resident of North Carolina
    • Ziyad Yaghi, 21, a U.S. citizen and resident of North Carolina
