Student who aided terrorists still not sentenced

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Sentencing has been delayed again for an Egyptian college student who pleaded guilty to making a video to help terrorists.

Twenty-seven-year-old Ahmed Mohamed pleaded guilty in June to making a YouTube video showing would-be terrorists how make a remote detonator for a bomb.

The video was found on his laptop computer when he and another University of South Florida student were stopped for speeding in South Carolina in August 2007.

He was scheduled to be sentenced Friday morning in Tampa. The new date is Dec. 18.

Co-defendant Youssef Samir Megahed is awaiting trial on charges of illegally transporting explosives. Prosecutors say the students were carrying bomb-making ingredients in their trunk.
