Following C.T.C. Wall, we say that a group G is of type F_n if it admits a classifying space which is a CW-complex with finite n-skeleton. For n=2 one recovers the notion of being finitely presented. We prove that in a cocompact arithmetic lattice in the group PU(m,1) with positive first Betti number, deep enough finite index subgroups admit plenty of homomorphisms to Z with kernel of type F_{m-1} but not of type F_m. This provides many non-hyperbolic finitely presented subgroups of hyperbolic groups and answers an old question of Brady. This is based on a joint work with C. Llosa Isenrich.
