Idaho Terror Suspect Enters Not Guilty Plea



Hemera/Thinkstock(BOISE, Idaho) -- An Uzbekistan national living in Idaho pleaded not guilty Friday to terror charges.

Fazliddin Kurbanov pleaded not guilty to three counts that charge him with giving cash, computer software and other resources to a recognized terror group in Uzbekistan.

The 30-year-old truck driver was arrested Thursday at his apartment in Boise where federal prosecutors had been watching him for some time. They say he's a supporter of the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, whose stated purpose is the overthrow of the Uzbekistan government -- but it had not been thought of as a direct threat to the United States.
