Saudi citizen who attended terrorist training camp indicted

A federal indictment accuses a Saudi Arabian man of falsifying immigration paperwork when he failed to disclose he attended a terrorist training camp before entering the United States.

A federal grand jury in Oklahoma City handed up the indictment Tuesday against 34 -year-old Naif Abdulaziz M. Alfallaj. Charges include visa fraud and building false statements. He has lived in Oklahoma since 2012.

The indictment alleges Alfallaj attended the al Qaeda-operated al Farooq terrorist training camp near Kandahar, Afghanistan, around September 2000 and filled out a sort employing a nickname.

The indictment says Alfallaj was granted a non-immigrant visa to the U.S. in 2011 after answering “no” when asked if he supported terrorist organizations or had received handguns training. It also alleges Alfallaj subsequently lied to federal investigators.
