    OAKLAND PARK, Fla. ó The family of two Florida brothers charged with plotting to support terrorists says that the charges are a misunderstanding and that the men wouldnít hurt anyone.

    A man who identified himself as the pairís brother said Saturday that the two had strong family values. The man repeatedly refused to provide his full name to an Associated Press reporter.

    Authorities swarmed the quiet, lakefront condominiums near Fort Lauderdale on Thursday and arrested 30-year-old Sheheryar Alam Qazi and 20-year-old Raees Alam Qazi. They are charged with plotting to provide material support to terrorists and to use a weapon of mass destruction. Prosecutors say the two are naturalized U.S. citizens originally from Pakistan.
