A Michigan man was charged Tuesday with providing material support to ISIS and being a felon in possession of a destructive device, according to an indictment unsealed in the Eastern District of Michigan.
Aws Mohammed Naser, 34, was arraigned Tuesday on both counts.
“Terrorism poses significant threats to people living in our District and around the world,” US Attorney for the Eastern District of Michigan Dawn Ison said in a statement. “We will aggressively investigate and prosecute anyone seeking to assist terrorists.”
Naser is accused of providing material support to ISIS in the form of personnel and services, including himself, according to the indictment.
