Jurors are shown Islamic State flags recovered in Texas attack
PHOENIX—Jurors at the trial of an Arizona man accused of helping plan an attack on a Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest in Texas were shown evidence Thursday found in the aftermath of the gunfire, including two flags bearing the logo of the Islamic State terrorist group.
Other items recovered from the scene of the May 3 attack in Garland, Texas, included three assault rifles, three pistols, bulletproof vests, a large supply of ammunition and a book titled, "Fortress of the Muslim."
The Islamic State flags were about the size of a legal pad.
The evidence was presented at the trial of Abdul Malik Abdul Kareem, a 44-year-old moving company owner accused of encouraging two Arizona men to carry out the attack and providing them with guns.
