GOOSE CREEK UPDATE:

Two Egyptian students at the University of South Florida were indicted Friday on charges of carrying explosive materials across states lines and one was accused of teaching the other how to use them for violent reasons.

Ahmed Abdellatif Sherif Mohamed, 24, an engineering graduate student and teaching assistant at the Tampa-based university, faces terrorism-related charges for teaching and demonstrating how to use the explosives.

He and Youssef Samir Megahed, 21, an engineering student, were stopped for speeding Aug. 4 in Goose Creek, S.C., where they have been held on state charges. A federal grand jury in Tampa handed up the indictment.

Seems that there was something to this story after all.

UPDATE: A roundup from Dan Riehl. And much more here, including a link to the indictment.
