Ad Feedback

Federal terrorism charges were handed down Tuesday to two Iraqis living in Bowling Green, Ky.

Allegations against Waad Ramadan Alwan, 39, and Mohanad Shareef Hammadi, 23, include providing support to al Qaeda in Iraq and conspiring to transport Stinger missiles overseas.

The 23-count indictment was unsealed Tuesday after the pair made their appearances in federal court in Louisville.

None of the charges involve plots within the United States. Prosecutors identified Alwan as a former member of the Iraqi insurgency that planted explosives aimed at killing U.S. troops in Iraq over eight years.

If convicted, Alwan and Hammadi could face life in prison.
