U.S. Presses Case Against Muslim Charity

Federal authorities unseal an indictment charging the Dallas-based Holy Land Foundation with conspiracy, dealing with terrorists and money laundering. U.S. authorities had shut down the foundation in late 2001 and frozen its assets, accusing it of helping to finance Hamas. Monday, the foundation accused the FBI of basing its case on wrongly translated Israeli intelligence documents. NPR's Michele Norris talks with NPR's Jackie Northam.
