A former US Navy sailor arrested two weeks ago on terrorism charges was indicted Wednesday, accused of providing material support to terrorists with intent to kill US citizens and disclosing classified information relating to national defense. Hassan Abujihaad, 31, is accused of supporting terrorism by disclosing secret information about the location of Navy ships and the best ways to attack them. Investigators say he provided those secrets, in classified documents, to a suspected terrorism financier. Abujihaad will appear in court Friday. If convicted, he faces up to 25 years in prison. The information involved a US Navy battle group scheduled to move to the Persian Gulf in the spring of 2001 to engage in missions against al-Qaida and the Taliban, according to the indictment. The information included a drawing of the group's formation when it was to pass through the Straits of Hormuz at night under a communications blackout, the indictment says.
