Verdict reached in Holy Land case

DALLAS (AP) - Jurors have reached a verdict in the second trial of a Muslim charity accused of helping to finance terrorism in the nation's largest such case since the Sept. 11 attacks.

The verdict was to be announced Monday afternoon, on the eighth day of deliberations in the retrial of the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development - once the nation's largest Muslim charity and a banner government target of alleged terrorism fundraising on American soil.

Holy Land is accused of giving more than $12 million to support the Palestinian militant group Hamas, which the U.S. designated as a terrorist organization in 1995 and made supporting the group illegal.

Jurors were to read a long list of verdicts on more than 100 other charges against Holy Land and five of its former leaders.
