An Egyptian university student accused of making an Internet video demonstrating how to make an explosives detonator pleaded not guilty to federal charges Wednesday. An attorney for engineering student Ahmed Abdellatif Sherif Mohamed, who has been suspended from the University of South Florida, entered a written plea of not guilty for his client. He was scheduled for arraignment Thursday. Mohamed, 24, will remain jailed on federal charges of distributing information relating to explosives, destructive devices, and weapons of mass destruction. He also faces additional charges with another Egyptian student, Youssef Samir Megahed, 21, of carrying explosive materials across state lines.
