Chicago Teenager Arrested in Bomb Plot

By

Federal prosecutors announced that 18-year-old Adel Daoud has been charged with attempting to detonate a car bomb outside a bar in downtown Chicago. Daoud, who is a United States citizen, first came to the attention of the authorities after he "posted material online about violent jihad and the killing of Americans," which prompted two FBI agents posing as Muslim extremists to contact him in May. According to prosecutors, no one was ever in any real danger, as the device Daoud intended to use was a fake provided to him by the undercover officers.
