PHILADELPHIA  — The US terrorism suspect who authorities say dubbed herself "Jihad Jane" online has pleaded not guilty to all counts in federal court in Philadelphia.

Colleen LaRose of Pennsburg appeared in court Thursday wearing a green jumpsuit and corn rows in her blond hair.

She was accused in a four-count indictment charging her with conspiring with jihadist fighters and pledging to commit murder in the name of a Muslim holy war. Authorities say she wanted to kill a Swedish artist who had offended Muslims.

Authorities say she grew acquainted online with violent co-conspirators from around the world. They say she posted a YouTube video in 2008 saying she was "desperate to do something" to ease the suffering of Muslims.

She was arrested in October 2009 in Philadelphia while returning to the United States.
