Pennsylvania woman arrested for alleged jihad recruitment

A Pennsylvania woman has been indicted for conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists and kill a person in a foreign country, the Justice Department announced Tuesday.

Colleen LaRose - also known as "Jihad Jane" - and five unindicted co-conspirators recruited men on the Internet "to wage violent jihad in South Asia and Europe, and recruited women on the Internet who had passports and the ability to travel to and around Europe in support of violent jihad," according  to a Justice Department statement.

If convicted, LaRose faces a possible life prison sentence and a $1  million fine, the statement said.
