NEW YORK (AP) — A terror suspect accused of aiding the Islamic State is set to make his first appearance in a U.S. court.

Federal prosecutors in Brooklyn announced conspiracy and other charges against Dilkhayot Kasimov earlier this week. He’s scheduled for arraignment on Wednesday afternoon.

Prosecutors say Kasimov helped raise $1,600 that was given to another man who wanted to enlist with the Islamic State militant group in Syria. They say the would-be recruit was intercepted at Kennedy Airport last month before he could fly overseas.

The 26-year-old immigrant from Uzbekistan was charged in an indictment accusing three other defendants in the recruitment plot. All three have pleaded not guilty.

The name of Kasimov’s attorney wasn’t available.
