NEW HAVEN, Connecticut (AP) - One of two men extradited from Britain to the U.S. last year has pleaded guilty to supporting terrorists in Afghanistan by operating websites to raise cash, recruit fighters and solicit items such as gas masks.

Babar Ahmad pleaded guilty Tuesday in federal court in New Haven, Connecticut, to charges of providing support to terrorists.

A judge did not immediately accept the plea while she awaits information from probation, but she said the plea was voluntarily made and set sentencing for March 4. Ahmed faces up to 25 years in prison under the plea agreement.

The other defendant, Syed Talha Ahsan, is scheduled to change his plea Tuesday afternoon to guilty.

The two men faced charges in Connecticut, where an Internet service provider was allegedly used to run one of the websites.
