WASHINGTON — Federal prosecutors filed terrorism charges Friday against a second American woman in the so-called Jihad Jane case, accusing the pair of plotting online to attend a terror training camp. Jamie Paulin-Ramirez flew from Ireland on Friday to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where she was arrested by agents with the joint terrorism task force there.

Last month, authorities in Ireland detained Paulin-Ramirez and six others as they investigated an alleged plot to kill a Swedish cartoonist whose drawing had offended many Muslims. Those seven suspects in Ireland were linked to Colleen LaRose, a 46-year-old woman who had traveled to Europe but was arrested last fall when she returned to the United States.

The new indictment charges that LaRose, 46, and Paulin-Ramirez, 31, separately traveled to Europe to support violent holy war. The court papers also say that once LaRose was in Europe, she invited Paulin-Ramirez to join her to attend a "training camp."

When the initial charges were unsealed last month against LaRose, 46, it marked one of only a handful of times the United States has filed terrorism charges against a woman.
