PORTLAND -- A Portland city employee charged with aiding terrorism has been freed on bond, pending his trial.

Reaz Qadir Khan, a 48-year-old employee of the city's wastewater department, is accused of aiding a 2009 suicide bombing of the headquarters of Pakistan's intelligence agency.

U.S. District Court Judge Michael Mossman found Thursday that Khan does not pose a substantial flight risk.

Mossman ordered Khan to avoid contact with two people connected to the case, whose names were not made public. Khan will also have to abide by certain terms of release, including posting a $2,500 bond.

Khan also had to show the details of his assets, which included an account in Pakistan.

Mossman said that account concerned him. Khan said the account is inactive and he can't withdraw money from it.
