Anti-terror agents arrest seven in Raleigh

RALEIGH, N.C. — Officials arrested seven residents of North Carolina Monday on charges they supported terrorism by recruiting people to fight overseas.

Daniel Patrick Boyd, 39, Hysen Sherifi, 24, Anes Subasic, 33, Zakariya Boyd, 20, Dylan Boyd, 22, Mohammad Omar Aly Hassan, 22, and Ziyad Yaghi, 21, have been charged with conspiring to provide material support to terrorists and conspiring to murder, kidnap and injure persons abroad, the assistant attorney general for the National Security Division announced Monday.

All of the defendants are U.S. citizens, except Sherifi, who is U.S. legal permanent resident. The men were living in North Carolina, according to the indictment.

Daniel Boyd, Sherifi and Zakariya Boyd are also each charged with possession of a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence.

Daniel Boyd and Dylan Boyd face an additional charge of selling a firearm to a convicted felon, according to the indictment.

Daniel Boyd is also charged with receiving a firearm through interstate commerce and two counts of making false statements in a terrorism investigation.

A federal grand returned a sealed seven-count indictment against the defendants Wednesday.

The defendants were arrested at various locations Monday morning by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and other law enforcement agencies.

They made their initial appearances Monday in federal court in Raleigh. At that time, the indictment was unsealed.

“The indictment alleges that Daniel Boyd is a veteran of terrorist training camps in Pakistan and Afghanistan who, over the past three years, has conspired with others in this country to recruit and help young men travel overseas in order to kill," David Kris, assistant attorney general for the National Security Division, said in a statement.

"Given the weapons allegedly involved in this conspiracy and the seriousness of the charges, the many agents, analysts and prosecutors who were able to bring about this case and safely remove these defendants from our streets deserve special thanks."
