WASHINGTON - A Pakistani-born man living in Virginia pleaded guilty in a US court on Friday to providing support to the militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba by making a propaganda video and posting it online.

Jubair Ahmad, 24, pleaded guilty in federal court in Virginia to one count of providing material support to the group, the Justice Department said. He faces up to 15 years in prison when sentenced on April 13, 2012.

Lashkar-e-Taiba, an anti-Indian militant group with historical ties to Pakistan's top spy agencies, was designated by the United States in 2001 as a foreign terrorist organization.

The group has been accused of orchestrating the 2008 Mumbai attacks that killed 166 people, including six Americans.
