A Miami imam is scheduled to appear in court along with his two sons to answer charges they helped finance terrorism.
Hafiz Muhammed Sher Ali Khan, 72, and his sons Izhar Khan and Irfan Khan have been accused of donating about $50,000 to support the Pakistani Taliban. All three are U.S. citizens.
According to the indictment, the funds in question were used to buy guns, support militants and promote the Taliban.
Alam Zeb, Khan's 19-year-old grandson, called the allegations "baseless."
"None of my family supports the Taliban," he told the Associated Press. "We support this country."
Should the Khans be convicted, each could be sentenced to up to 15 years in prison for each of the four counts listed in the indictment.
