Feds Arrest 2 For Plan To Bomb NYC Area

Federal authorities arrested two ISIS inspired women Thursday morning for allegedly planning to detonate a bomb in the New York City area. An FBI undercover operation found evidence roommates Noelle Velentez and Asia Siddiqui were looking at ISIS propaganda on the internet, intent on building a bomb.

Federal authorities in New York also arrested Muhanad Mahmoud Al Farekh Thursday afternoon for conspiracy to carry out attacks against the U.S. military. Farekh was born in Texas but raised in Jordan.
