A college student facing a terrorism-related charge made a video showing how to detonate explosives using a remote control toy, and the demonstration was uploaded to a popular Web site before the native of Kuwait was arrested, according to court documents. Ahmed Abdellatif Sherif Muhamad, who was indicted last month on federal charges, told authorities he made the video "to assist those persons in Arabic countries to defend themselves against the infidels invading their countries," according to an FBI agent's sworn statement filed Tuesday. Muhamad said "he considered American troops, and those military forces fighting with the American military, to be invaders of Arab countries," according to the FBI agent's statement.
