Seattle Terror plot

New indictment charges two in Seattle terror plot
A federal grand jury has returned a nine-count indictment against two men charged in a plot to attack a military recruiting center in Seattle.
The U.S. attorney's office says the indictment released Wednesday charges 33-year-old Khalid Abdul-Latif of Seattle and 32-year-old Walli Mujahidh of Los Angeles with conspiracy to murder federal agents and officers, as well as conspiracy to use weapons of mass destruction.
Each also faces additional weapons charges, and Abdul-Latif is accused of soliciting a crime of violence.
According to allegations previously laid out in an FBI complaint, the two were arrested June 22 after they arrived at a warehouse garage to pick up machine guns to use in the attack. Investigators said they learned of the plot when someone Abdul-Latif recruited to obtain weapons turned to Seattle police and then acted as a paid confidential informant.
The pair was due to be arraigned in U.S. District Court on Wednesday afternoon.
