An Australian court has ordered a 22-year-old medical student to stand trial in Sydney for allegedly training with the outlawed Islamic group Lashkar-e-Taiba.
Pakistan-born Izhar Ul-Haque faces a maximum 25-year sentence if convicted of training with the Pakistani group, which is fighting Indian rule in the disputed territory of Kashmir.
Australia lists Lashkar-e-Taiba as a terrorist organization.
Customs officers stopped Mr. Ul-Haque in March 2003 as he returned to Australia from Pakistan. He was carrying notebooks containing information on rocket launchers, land mines and tanks.
Police say Mr. Ul-Haque told them he did not believe that training with Lashkar-e-Taiba to fight India constituted terrorism.
A trial date has not yet been set.
