ALEXANDRIA, Va. — A 24-year-old Virginia resident has been accused of helping produce a video for a terrorist group in Pakistan.

Jubair Ahmad is a Pakistani native and was arrested Friday. According to court documents, in September 2010 Jubair produced and uploaded a propaganda video to YouTube on behalf of Lashkar e Tayyiba, a Pakistan terrorist group.

The five-minute video showed the group's leader and images of armored trucks exploding after being hit by improvised explosive devices. The documents say he denied involvement when interviewed by FBI agents.

Ahmad was charged with providing material support to a foreign terrorist organization and making false statements in a terrorism investigation. He faces up to 23 years in prison.
