Man Serving Time on Terrorism Charges out of Idaho Charged with Attempted Murder
BOISE, Idaho (KLIX) A man who once lived in Idaho and was convicted of supporting terrorist activities has now been charged for trying to murder a prison warden. The U.S. Attorney's office in California says Fazliddin Kurbanov, 34, was charged with attempted murder after he stabbed a prison guard in 2016 with a knife he made. Kurbanov is serving a 25-year sentenced for supporting a foreign terrorist organization and possessing an unregistered destructive device.
He had targeted July 4th celebrations in Boise and a military base. In this latest incident, Kurbanov used a prison-made knife to attack Warden Calvin Johsnon at the Federal Correction Institute at Victorville, CA.
