Eighth terror suspect named in North Carolina

RALEIGH — A Wake County man arrested in Pakistan last year for traveling in restricted areas was named Monday as the eighth suspect in what federal prosecutors say is a locally hatched plot to commit acts of terrorism abroad.

Jude Kenan Mohammad, 20, who left Wake County for Pakistan in October, is still wanted by U.S. officials. FBI agents don't know whether the Fuquay-Varina High School dropout is in Pakistan or has traveled elsewhere.

"He's a wanted fugitive," said Amy Thoreson, spokeswoman for the FBI office in Charlotte. "We're still actively searching for him."

rosecutors' evidence in the terrorism case isn't yet known, with only a 14-page indictment giving a skeletal account of how authorities say the suspects were plotting to engage in suicide missions.
