A grocer of Palestinian descent pleaded guilty to misleading FBI agents about his brother's intentions to leave the United States for Israel and become a suicide bomber, according to a media report.
Mohamed Subeh, 43, acknowledged in US District Court that he deceived federal agents when he denied seeing a letter from his brother that indicated he wanted to become a suicide bomber, the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle reported. Prosecutors said Subeh destroyed the letter, but not before investigators had the opportunity to photocopy it and have it translated.
Subeh, a naturalized US citizen, faces a sentence ranging from probation to six months in prison.
