— A new federal indictment adds charges against a North Carolina man accused in a terrorism case.

Anes Subasic has been charged with two counts of "unlawful procurement of citizenship" because authorities say he misrepresented his past while applying to become a naturalized citizen.

Prosecutors say in the indictment that Subasic claimed in 2003 documents that he had never been charged with committing any crime or offense. They say he had been charged on at least 10 occasions prior to filing the documents.

Subasic is one of nine men accused in 2009 of plotting international terrorism. Seven are being held in jails in North Carolina and Virginia, while an eighth resides in the Balkans country of Kosovo. The ninth suspect is believed to be in Pakistan.

An attorney for Subasic declined comment Wednesday. A trial isn't expected in the case until next September.
