    Prominent US Muslim charged with dealings with Libya

    WASHINGTON (AFP) - A prominent US Muslim political activist, who helped the Pentagon set up its Islamic chaplain program, was charged with having had financial dealings with Libya, the Justice Department revealed.

    Abdurahman Alamoudi, of Falls Church, Virginia, was charged Thursday in an 18-count indictment handed down by a federal grand jury in Alexandria, Virginia, said Paul J. McNulty, US Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia.

    McNulty said the charges against Alamoudi, a 51-year-old native of Eritrea, included prohibited financial transactions with Libya, money laundering, misuse of a passport and unlawful procurement of US naturalized citizenship.
