Wyo Tech Student Indicted for Aiding Terrorist Grouo

El Paso, TX – A federal grand jury in El Paso, Texas indicted a Wyoming Technical Institute student this week on terrorism charges. 19-year-old Mark Robert Walker of Rochester, New York, is accused of attempting to aid a terrorist organization in Somalia. Investigators say Walker was in communication with people involved with a group supporting an Islamic government in Somalia, and had plans to travel there to fight. Walker's roommate at Wyo Tech in Laramie told law enforcement that his computer had been used by Walker to communicate with terrorist groups on the Internet.
