NEW YORK — A man in custody in Canada has been indicted on U.S. charges he aided Tunisian jihadists with suicide bombing missions in Iraq.

The indictment unsealed Friday in federal court in Brooklyn charges Faruq Khalil Muhammad 'Isa with conspiring to kill Americans and providing material support to terrorists.

Prosecutors say Muhammad 'Isa was part of a terror network behind separate attacks in Iraq in 2009 that killed five American soldiers outside a U.S. base and seven people at an Iraqi police complex. They say he was caught on a wiretap giving the attackers encouragement and advice.

The 38-year-old Canadian citizen and Iraqi national was arrested in Edmonton, Alberta, on a U.S. warrant in January. His lawyer has said he will fight extradition.

If convicted, Muhammad 'Isa faces life in prison.
