Woodbridge man sentenced to 12 years for terrorist propaganda video

A Woodbridge man was sentenced Friday to 12 years in prison for providing material support to the foreign terrorist organization Lashkar-e-Tayyiba, also known as LeT, according to federal authorities in Virginia.

The 24-year-old Jubair Ahmad, a native of Pakistan, pleaded guilty in December in U.S. District Court in Alexandria to producing a violent jihadist video.

Ahmad admitted that he had communicated with Talha Saeed, the son of Lashkar-e-Tayyiba leader Hafiz Muhammad Saeed, authorities said. Talha Saeed instructed Ahmad to make a propaganda video to include a prayer calling for the support of jihad and Islamic freedom fighters playing in the background.
