MIAMI — A Muslim cleric in Florida has pleaded not guilty to charges of supporting the Pakistani Taliban terrorist group.

The plea was entered Friday in federal court in Miami by 24-year-old Izhar Khan, imam of a mosque in suburban Margate.

Khan's 76-year-old father, Hafiz Muhammad Sher Ali Khan, previously pleaded not guilty. Another of his sons, 37-year-old Irfan Khan, is expected in Miami next week following his arrest in May in Los Angeles.

The Khans and three other people living in Pakistan are charged with conspiracy and providing material support to the Pakistani Taliban. Prosecutors say they provided at least $50,000 to the terror group, which has been involved in numerous violent attacks and plots.

The Khans are being held without bail. The four charges carry 15-year maximum prison terms.
