DENVER - A Philadelphia man accused of being a member of an Islamic militant group US authorities say is seeking to overthrow the secular government of Uzbekistan has been arrested on charges of conspiracy to provide support to a terrorist organization.

Bakhtiyor Jumaev, 45, was arrested on Thursday in Philadelphia on charges of supporting the Islamic Jihad Union (IJU), the US Attorney's Office for Colorado said.

Federal authorities said Jumaev was a close friend of Jamshid Muhtorov, a 35-year-old Uzbek refugee living in suburban Denver who was arrested in January at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport on a similar charge.
