Terror suspects plan to change pleas in Conn.

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — Two men extradited from Britain last year on charges they supported terrorists in Afghanistan and Chechnya by operating websites to raise cash, recruit fighters and solicit items such as gas masks are expected to change their pleas.

Court records show Babar Ahmad and Syed Talha Ahsan are scheduled to change their pleas Tuesday in federal court in New Haven to charges of providing support to terrorists. They previously pleaded not guilty.

Telephone and email messages left with their attorneys Thursday were not immediately returned.

They face up to 15 years in prison.
