BOSTON, Massachusetts (CNN) -- A Canadian national whose family has ties to Osama bin Laden was indicted Wednesday on charges he procured weapons for al Qaeda to use in attacking Americans and U.S. property in Afghanistan, federal prosecutors said.

Abdullah Khadr, 24, was arrested in Canada on December 17 and has been in custody awaiting extradition to the United States since then, said a written statement from Michael J. Sullivan, U.S. attorney for Massachusetts.
