Karlsruhe, Germany (dpa) - A Jordanian has been indicted in Germany over a plot to set up a school for terrorists in Sudan, prosecutors said Tuesday.

Thaer A, aged 33, who was picked up by Swedish police in March and extradited to Germany the following month, is the second member of the alleged ring of five men to face trial.

German federal prosecutors said the group believed a guerrilla- style war was approaching and divided up the tasks of establishing a camp where volunteers could train for "jihad" or holy war.

A was put in charge of fund-raising and remitting money abroad and was also involved in recruitment of new members.

Another man, Redouane e-H from the northern city of Kiel, has been on trial since July. A third accused, Abdel Ali M, was extradited from Sweden to Germany in May.
