BOSTON: An American woman, who called herself 'Jihad Jane' and is accused of conspiring to provide support to terrorists for staging terror attacks in South Asia and Europe, is expected to reverse last year's not-guilty plea in a Philadelphia court on February 1.
Colleen LaRose, 47, had pleaded not guilty in March 2010 to charges including conspiracy to kill in foreign country. She was allegedly part of a plot to murder Swedish cartoonist Lars Vilks, whose portrait of prophet Mohammed had angered many. According to a court document, LaRose is set to plead guilty at a "change-of-plea" hearing.
