German prosecutors said Tuesday that they have charged a Jordanian man with co-founding a terrorist group that allegedly aimed to set up a training camp in Sudan. The 33-year-old, identified only as Thaer A., was charged with founding a terrorist organization abroad, federal prosecutors said in a statement. They said his main job was to take care of financing and money transfers for the group, and that he also was involved in the recruitment of new members. Prosecutors allege that the group was founded in June or July of 2006, and that four other people co-founded it. One of the others, a dual citizen of Germany and Morocco, went on trial on July.
