BROOKLYN - In the middle of the latest terror threat, a Brooklyn man has been arrested for allegedly providing support to a Pakistani extremist group. Police have charged Agron Hasbarami, 27, with aiding Pakistani terrorists and conspiring to commit murder in another country. He was arrested Tuesday at John F. Kennedy International Airport. Hasbarami is a U.S. resident, but also holds an Albanian citizenship. The U.S. Attorney's Office said Hasbarami sent more than $1,000 to Pakistan, and that he traded emails with a radical jihad group that has reportedly killed American troops overseas. Hasbarami pleaded not guilty. If convicted, he could face up to 15 years in prison.
