A federal judge could decide Tuesday if a Chicago businessman accused of plotting a terror attack overseas will be released on bond.During a hearing last week, prosecutors called Tahawwur Rana, 48, a danger to the community and a flight risk and said he should be denied bond.

Rana's attorney says he's innocent and was duped by the other man charged in the plot, David Headley, 49.

An attorney says friends and family of the Chicago man accused of taking part in a terrorist scheme to attack a Danish newspaper are willing to post $1 million in real estate and cash to win his release on bond.

Rana and Headley are accused of plotting to attack a Danish newspaper that published cartoons in 2005 depicting the prophet Mohammed.

Rana, who owns a business on Devon and a farm southwest of Chicago, is due in court Tuesday afternoon.
