A defendant has been brought from Hawaii to New York to face a charge of making false statements in a matter involving international terrorism.

Abdel Hameed Shehadeh is scheduled to appear in Brooklyn federal court on Tuesday.

A criminal complaint says Shehadeh, a U.S. citizen, lived on Staten Island in early 2008 when he devised a plan to travel to Pakistan to join the Taliban or a similar fighting group.

Authorities say he created websites that posted speeches by al-Qaida leaders.
