FBI Says Lodi Cleric Plotted Terror Attacks

Sponsored by:

San Francisco, CA — A judge in San Francisco is refusing to offer bail to a Pakistani cleric facing deportation.

The cleric has been accused of planning to set up a terrorism training camp in Lodi. The accusation from an FBI agent came during an immigration hearing for Shabbir Ahmed.

Ahmed is seeking bail on a charge of overstaying his visa while he was heading a mosque in the Central Valley.

Ahmed is one of five men connected to the mosque who were arrested in June. He has only been accused of immigration violations, not terror-related charges

But FBI agent Gary Schaaf testified that Ahmed and others were in the fledgling stages of opening a camp in Lodi to train followers how to kill Americans.
