An Uzbek national pleaded guilty in a US court to conspiring to support the Daesh terrorist group in Syria, Russia’s Sputnik news agency reported.

The Justice Department press release said Azizjon Rakhmatov, 32, a citizen of Uzbekistan and resident of New Haven, Connecticut pleaded guilty Thursday.

Rakhmatov, the release added, discussed helping co-defendants Abdurasul Juraboev and Akhror Saidakhmetov in travelling to Syria to fight on behalf of the terrorist group.

Rakhmatov transferred US$400 into the personal bank account of another co-conspirator to facilitate Saidakhmetov’s travel and cover expenses.

Thursday’s plea took place before US District Court Judge William Kuntz, according to the release.
