Ohio man accused of providing support for Middle East terror

A judge on Wednesday set bail at $1 million for an Ohio man accused in state charges of providing support and money laundering in support of terror, prosecutors said without identifying the people he was accused of aiding.
Abdirahman S. Mohamud, 23, a Columbus, Ohio, native, was indicted Monday by a Franklin County grand jury on the charges, according to court documents, and prosecutors were seeking for bail to be set as high as $2.5 million.
The formal state charges are "soliciting or providing support for act of terrorism" and "money laundering in support of terrorism."
"Defendant provided material support and resources or electronic devices to persons engaged in terrorism in the Middle East and has traveled to that area of the world," Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O'Brien said.
