Two brothers were indicted on terrorism-related charges after one allegedly provided money and equipment to the other who was battling troops in the Philippines as a member of a terrorist group.
FBI agents arrested Rahmat Abdhir, 43, of San Jose, outside his office in Sunnyvale on Thursday morning, federal authorities said. His brother, Zulkifli Abdhir, 41, remains at large in the Philippines, and is wanted on a $5 million (?3.66 million) reward.
Both were charged in a 16-count indictment including conspiracy to support terrorists. Rahmat Abdhir also was charged with making false statements and contributing goods and services to a known terrorist, his brother.
It was unclear if Rahmat Abdhir had hired an attorney yet Thursday, said Justice Department spokesman Dean Boyd.
