TAMPA, Fla. (AP) _ New details have emerged about a video that is key evidence in the government's case against two University of South Florida students facing explosives charges.
Authorities say one of the students (Ahmed Abdellatif Sherif Mohamed) made the video to demonstrate how to convert a remote-control toy car into a detonator for bombs.
In a court filing this week, federal prosecutors quoted an excerpt from the video. Its narrator says that instead of carrying out "martyrdom operations,'' people can use remote explosives and save themselves for the real battles.
A laptop containing the video was discovered when the men were pulled over for a traffic stop. Police also found explosive materials in their car.
The students are in jail pending trial, which is scheduled for December 3rd. They have pleaded not guilty.
