Terrorism Charges Filed in Boise

From May 16, 2013 Boise channel 6:
Fazliddin Kurbanov, 30, was arrested Thursday morning in Boise after a federal terrorism investigation.

Charges were filed Thursday afternoon in Boise and Salt Lake City against Kurbanov who was a United States citizen living in Boise currently.

The charges filed came after a federal grand jury in Boise returned a three-count indictment charging Kurbanov with one count of conspiracy to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization. In addition, one count of conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists and one count of possessing a destructive device.
And in case you notice the byline on the report--yup, that's my son.


  1. No potatoes were harmed in this investigation?


  2. Well we do have a few sporting events such as the Twilight Criterium that terrorists might try to bomb. And then there is Lucky Peak so it's not completely far-fetched that the Islamo-fascist terrorists might target Boise.
