PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- Federal prosecutors say they found Islamic books and printouts from the Internet -- including one titled "How Do I Train Myself for Jihad" -- in the apartment of two suspected members of a terrorist cell.
The material was discovered in the apartment October Lewis shared with her ex-husband Jeffrey Leon Battle. Both have been charged with conspiring to wage war against the United States.
Battle also told an FBI informant he wanted to shoot Jews in America, a federal prosecutor alleged at a detention hearing Friday hearing before Judge Ancer Haggerty, who ordered Lewis, 25, held in jail until her trial -- reversing a decision from a day earlier.
Battle, Lewis and four others were indicted in Portland last week on charges of conspiring to wage war against U.S. forces in Afghanistan and provide material support to the Taliban and al-Qaida.
Besides Battle and Lewis, the others charged with conspiracy to levy war are Habis Abdulla al Saoub, 36, who is at large; Patrice Lumumba Ford, 31, who was arrested last week in Portland and has pleaded innocent; Ahmed Ibrahim Bilal, 24, who turned himself in Sunday in Malaysia; and Bilal's brother, Muhammad Bilal, 22, who was arrested last week in Dearborn, Mich., and has pleaded innocent.
