Anti-terror agents arrest 7 in North Carolina


WASHINGTON (AP) -- Officials have charged a North Carolina man with supporting terrorism by recruiting people to fight overseas.

Daniel Boyd and six others are charged with providing material support to terrorism. Six suspects have been arrested in the Raleigh, N.C., area.

The Justice Department in Washington says Boyd, who is a US citizen, trained in Afghanistan and fought there between 1989 and 1992, and when he returned to the United States he recruited others.

Boyd and others are scheduled to appear in federal court in Raleigh.
