From the Daily News:
Two New York men have been charged with plotting to send money, supplies and computer advice to Al Qaeda, officials said Friday.
Wesam El-Hanafi, 34, of Brooklyn, and Sabirhan Hasanoff, 34, of Queens, were charged in the conspiracy. Both were being held in Virginia.
"Wesam El-Hanafi and Sabirhan Hasanoff conspired to modernize Al Qaeda by providing computer systems expertise and other goods and services," said Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara.
"El-Hanafi is also alleged to have traveled to Yemen to meet with al Qaeda members face-to-face."
El-Hanafi traveled to Yemen in 2008 where he swore an oath of allegiance to Al Qaeda, and then returned to the United States.
Once home, El-Hanafi met with other Al Qaeda members and performed unspecified tasks for his new terror masters, prosecutors allege.
The following year, he bought seven Casio digital watches - the chosen timer for many terrorist bombings - and had them delivered to his Brooklyn home, prosecutors charged.
