Muhanad Mahmoud al-Farekh was deported from Pakistan, where he had travelled to in about 2007.

He and two others travelled to the Federally Administered Tribal Areas of Pakistan from Winnipeg, Canada, where they were students.

Mr al-Farekh was born in Texas, and has been charged in New York.

He is accused of supporting a conspiracy to kill Americans and to carry out attacks against the US military.
