A Vietnamese man pleaded guilty to charges of helping militants in Yemen affiliated with al Qaeda on Friday in New York.

Minh Quang Pham was arrested in 2012 as U.S. prosecutors unveiled an indictment charging him with providing material support to, and receiving military training from, al Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula.

Prosecutors said Pham in December 2010 traveled from the United Kingdom to Yemen and took an oath of allegiance to the militant group.

Pham was extradited to the United States from the United Kingdom last February.
