A federal grand jury indicts two Austin-area men accused of trying to provide material support to terrorists. Both have pleaded not guilty.
Michael Todd Wolfe, a 23-year old Houston native, was arrested at George Bush Intercontinental Airport while reportedly starting a circuitous trip to join Islamic militants fighting in Syria.
The second suspect, 23-year old Rahatul Ashikim Khan was taken into custody in his Round Rock home. The University of Texas student, who became a US citizen in 2002, is accused of trying to recruit others to travel overseas to join the jihad.
Authorities would not say whether the two cases are connected; both men were arrested on the same day.
If convicted, each man faces up to 15 years in prison.
