    WASHINGTON - Reports from Washington say a former U.S. congressman and delegate to the United Nations has been indicted as part of a terrorist fundraising ring.

    The indictment says the accused allegedly sent more than $130,000 to an al-Qaida and Taliban supporter who has threatened U.S. and international troops in Afghanistan.

    The accused is named as a former Republican congressman from Michigan - Mark Deli Siljander.

    He is charged with money laundering, conspiracy and obstructing justice for allegedly lying about lobbying senators on behalf of an Islamic charity.

    Authorities say the charity was secretly sending funds to terrorists.

    A 42-count indictment, unsealed in U.S. District Court in Kansas City, Mo., accuses the Islamic American Relief Agency of paying Siljander $50,000 for the lobbying.

    It says the money turned out to be stolen from the U.S. Agency for International Development.

    Siljander served two terms in the U.S. House of Representatives.

    He was appointed by President Ronald Reagan to serve as a U.S. delegate to the United Nations for one year in 1987.
