(Reuters) - A Wisconsin woman used hacked Facebook accounts to provide lessons in making bombs and poison on behalf of the Islamic State militant group, prosecutors said Monday.

Waheba Issa Dais, 46, of Cudahy, Wisconsin, pleaded guilty to one count of “attempting to provide material support to the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), a designated foreign terrorist organization,” the U.S. Attorney’s Office of the Eastern District of Wisconsin said in a release.

Her support in 2018 took the form of providing expert advice on the Internet on bombs and biological weapons in order to help ISIS, officials said.

“Remember Boston Marathon bombing?” prosecutors said she posted to an undercover F.B.I. agent on Facebook. “It was very easy to make. All it needs is a pressure cooker, shrapnel and explosives. Join my channel and research.”
