FBI Sting Pledged ‘Martyrdom Payments” to Suspected Terrorist

 The attorney of a Moroccan immigrant who volunteered to kill himself in a bomb attack on the U.S. Capitol said his client was promised “martyrdom payments” by the FBI, the Associated Press reports.

The attorney also alleges the FBI gave suspect Amine El-Khalifi, 29, more than $5,700 in living expenses during the six-month sting.

Undercover agents also promised El-Khalifi that his parents would receive $1,000-a-month “martyrdom payments,” according to the AP.

El-Khalifi is expected to be sentenced Friday in federal court.
