2 Yemeni nationals charged in U.S. with joining al Qaeda.

Two Yemeni citizens and alleged members of al-Qaeda were indicted on charges of conspiring to kill American citizens abroad, the Department of Justice announced Tuesday.

Justice Department officials said on Tuesday they brought terrorism charges against two Yemeni men, who were arrested in Saudi Arabia, in federal court in Brooklyn. Prosecutors charge that both men took part in attacks on U.S. military forces in 2008 and also received al Qaeda training during a trip to Pakistan that year, Reuters reported.

Lynch, the Obama administration’s nominee to be the next attorney general, said the two men provided material support to al Qaeda and conspired to kill U.S. citizens abroad. The U.S. attorney there, Loretta Lynch, is the current nominee for U.S. attorney general. “There is no escape from the reach of our law for violent terrorists, especially if they target our military,” Lynch said in a statement. “Al-Abbadi and Alvi may have operated in the mountains of Afghanistan, but now they face justice in a courtroom in Brooklyn.” The investigation leading to the arrest of the two suspects took years and involved several cooperating witnesses, according to a deposition by Herman Heim, an agent with the FBI.
