Authorities: Woodbridge man posted terror video

A Pakistani man living in Woodbridge is facing federal charges that he provided material support to a terrorist organization by allegedly uploading violent videos advocating jihad to the web, court documents show.

Jubair Ahmad is expected to be arraigned in a U.S. District Court in Alexandria on Friday.

In September 2010, authorities allege Jubair uploaded a five-minute video to Youtube showing armored trucks exploding after being hit by improvised explosive devices and images of the leader of Lashkar-e-Tayyiba, a Pakistani organization that promotes jihad against enemies of Islam and has carried out attacks in India.

Jubair, who was granted a visa to come to the United States in 2006, is also said to have trained in one of the organization’s camps in Pakistan, according to court records. He was 19 when the visa was issued.
