NEW YORK - A New York accountant accused by US authorities of helping al-Qaida with computer systems pleaded guilty on Monday in federal court to terrorism-related charges.

Sabirhan Hasanoff, 36, a dual US and Australian citizen who owns a home in Brooklyn, New York, was arrested in April 2010 and charged with conspiracy to provide material support to al-Qaida.

At a hearing in US District Court in Manhattan, Hasanoff told Judge Kimba Wood that between 2007 and 2010 he agreed to give support to the terrorist Islamist network.

He faces up to 20 years in prison.

Before his arrest Hasanoff had been a group chief financial officer for a Dubai-based company for 3-1/2 years.
