A British webmaster accused of supporting terrorism was arrested in his London home on Wednesday. Syed Talha Ahsan, 26, is accused by the US of aiding and abetting the Taliban and Islamic fighters via the creation of various fund raising and propaganda websites. He's also accused of illegally possessing classified US Navy troop movement plans and providing jihadists with temporary housing in London.

US authorities are seeking Ahsan's extradition, following his indictment on conspiracy to support terrorism and conspiracy to murder charges by a US Grand Jury in Connecticut (PDF). Ahsan was charged in the same case as Babar Ahmed, who has been resisting extradition to the US for the last two years. The pair are both accused of running websites including Azzam.com, which US prosecutors allege was used as a fundraising, recruitment and propaganda tool for jihadists between 1998 and 2002. Both men are being held on remand pending the outcome of extradition proceedings. ®
