DENVER - A refugee from Uzbekistan has been arrested in Chicago and charged with providing support to a suspected Islamic terrorist group that US authorities say is seeking to overthrow the secular government of his Central Asian home country.

Jasmshid Muhtorov, 35, who resides in Colorado, was taken into custody on Saturday at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport by FBI agents and made his initial court appearance in federal court on Monday, the US Justice Department said.

A criminal complaint charging him with providing and attempting to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization was unsealed on Monday in federal court in Denver.
