RALEIGH — Seven North Carolina terrorism suspects are due in federal court for a detention hearing.

Attorneys in the case will meet with a judge Tuesday morning for a status conference before the case goes into a detention hearing. The men were arrested and charged last week with plotting to murder, kidnap, maim and injure persons in a foreign country.

The indictment names 39-year-old Daniel Boyd as the suspected ringleader, saying he bought guns and led the group of men. The indictment also names Boyd’s two sons – 20-year-old Zakariya and 22-year-old Dylan. It says some of the men took trips over the past three years to Jordan, Kosovo, Pakistan and Israel “to engage in violent jihad.”

Authorities are looking for an eighth suspect, 20-year-old Jude Kenan Mohammad.
