A man facing charges for alleged ties to terrorism will be forced to live near Cambridge for the time being. Forty year old Sultane Salim is one of four men facing charges of conspiracy in federal court in Toledo for raising money and support for Anwar al-Awlaki, an al-Qaeda leader who was killed in a U.S. drone strike in 2011.
After his indictment on federal charges, Salim lost his job and was evicted from the Columbus home he shared with his Pakistani wife and their three children. Salim and his family will be staying at his mother’s Guernsey County property – property she leveraged for his $500,000 bond. His mother and his wife are charged with the responsibility of making sure he abides by the conditions of his release. Local authorities call it an “unbelievable decision”. (Daily Jeffersonian)
