By Rita Jane Gabbett on 10/27/2009
Tahawwur Hussain Rana, owner of a halal meat processing plant in Kinsman, Ill., was arrested for alleged involvement in an international terrorist plot as FBI agents raided the plant for company records, according to media reports.
The plant, owned by First World Management, was raided on Oct. 18 by about 100 federal agents and other law enforcement officials, at least some of whom were armed. The raid also involved more than 50 government vehicles and an overhead helicopter, neighbors who saw the plant raid told CBS 2 Chicago. Company records were seized from the meat plant, which reportedly slaughtered goat, beef and lamb in accordance with Muslim custom.
The Chicago Tribune reported that the plant owner, also known as Tahawar Rana, was arrested at his Chicago home the same day the plant and another related Chicago business were raided. CBS 2 said Rana owned a number of other businesses, including First World Immigration Services, which operates in Chicago, New York and Toronto.
Rana was charged along with David Coleman Headley, born Daood Gilani, in connection with plans for terrorist attacks against overseas targets, among them a Danish newspaper that published cartoons depicting the prophet Muhammad four years ago, according to CBS 2.

Finally, Alford, while he could still talk, told his family that he ate a sheep's brain while deployed to a Middle Eastern country. But the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said there's no evidence that CJD can be transmitted directly to a human from a sheep.
But they also see another possibility.
Staff Sgt. Alford told his doctors and his family that he ate sheep's brain when serving in Oman two years ago.
"As a Green Beret, he lived among the people," said his wife, Spec. Alford. "He said the locals served him the head of a sheep. It was considered an honor."
