WASHINGTON (AFP) A US federal jury in Houston, Texas has found a Pakistan man guilty of conspiring to support and provide funds to the Taliban, officials said Friday. The jurys verdict late Thursday convicted Adnan Mirza, 33, of all nine counts of supporting the extremist group and of seven counts of unlawfully possessing firearms and ammunition, a Justice Department statement said. US District Judge Ewing Werlein set sentencing for September 10. Mirza, who entered the United States on a student visa and attended a local community college in 2005 and 2006 when he allegedly committed the offences, faces up to 10 years in prison for each of the weapons counts and up to five years for the conspiracy counts. An FBI sting operation found that Mirza and others engaged in paramilitary training with firearms six times starting in May 2006 at camp sites in northern Houston to prepare for jihad, according to the US attorneys office for the Southern District of Texas. The group also intended to send funds to the Taliban, according to the investigation. Mirza remains in federal custody pending his sentencing hearing.
