A naturalized US citizen from Iran who was found in Iraq was indicted Friday on charges of providing support to a terrorist organization that seeks to overthrow the current Iranian regime, federal prosecutors said. Zeinab Taleb-Jedi, 51, then a resident of Herndon, Virginia, went to Iraq in 1999 to attend a training camp run by the Mujahedeen Khalq, or MEK, the US attorney's office in Los Angeles said in a statement. "During Operation Iraqi Freedom, Taleb-Jedi was discovered by coalition forces in an MEK training camp called Ashraf Base," about 65 kilometers northwest of Baghdad, the statement said. Taleb-Jedi was indicted by a federal grand jury in Brooklyn, New York, on one count of providing material support to a foreign terrorist organization. She faces up to 15 years in federal prison if convicted.
