Judge being asked to revoke bond of Ohio terrorism suspect

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — Federal prosecutors in Ohio will ask a judge to revoke the bond for one of four men accused of raising money for a former al-Qaida leader.

Court officials say Sultane Room Salim has twice violated terms of his release, including briefly leaving a Columbus mosque during prayer services while he was out on bond.

A hearing on the matter is scheduled Friday in Toledo.

U.S. marshals took Salim into custody earlier this month.

Salim was released from prison in November on a $500,000 property bond. A judge ordered him to live with his wife and mother in the Cambridge area of eastern Ohio while awaiting a potential trial.

His attorneys have denied his involvement in what prosecutors say was an effort to raise money for former al-Qaida leader Anwar al-Awlaki.
