Three Men Charged in 2016 Plot to Bomb New York City

Three Men Charged in 2016 Plot to Bomb New York City”

Three men have been arrested since May of previous year on charges of plotting attacks in New York City for Islamic State in the summer of 2016, U.S. prosecutors said on Friday. Two other men - 19-year-old Talha Haroon, an American citizen living in Pakistan, and 37-year-old Russell Salic, a citizen of the Philippines - have also been arrested.

Haroon planned to meet with bomb experts in Pakistan and move to NY to join his colleague, according to authorities.

The three wanted to "support ISIS" but their plans never got off the ground, officials said.

In preparing for the attacks, the two communicated electronically with an undercover Federal Bureau of Investigation agent posing as an ISIS supporter.

He sent the undercover agent maps of the subway system and identified which lines to target with their explosives, the DOJ said.

"W$3 e just walk in with guns in our hands".

U.S. Department of Justice officials say El Bahnasawy purchased as much as 40 pounds of hydrogen peroxide, the main ingredient in the explosive TATP, which has been used by ISIS terrorists in Europe.

"I wanna kill. them in thousands" he allegedly told the undercover.

Salic was going to allegedly finance the plot. He allegedly said he'd want to execute the attack as soon as May 30, 2016 - Memorial Day.

But Haroon and his accomplices were arrested before any attack could be carried out.

El Bahnasawy has not been sentenced but faces as much as life in prison. Both are awaiting extradition to the U.S., the feds said.
