Jury selection began today in federal court in Atlanta in the trial of Ehsanul Islam Sadequee. He is accused of feeding information to known terrorists.

Sadeque was arrested three years ago in Bangladesh. He grew up in an Atlanta suburb.

The 23-year-old is facing charges of plotting jihad on America. Agents tracked down videos Sadequee made with a friend Syed Ahmed. They show footage of Washington landmarks and were also found on a computer of a London terror suspect.

Ahmed was convicted in June of plotting to aid terrorists. He’s awaiting sentencing.

Sadequee has pleaded not guilty and says he will represent himself. If convicted, he faces more than 20 years in prison. The trial is expected to last one week.
