Fox News just reported on twitter that a plot to target New York soft targets was uncovered about one month ago.
Information about this plot was not released sooner, as they were trying to round up as many co-conspirators as possible without alerting them.
The defendants are: ABDULRAHMAN EL BAHNASAWY, a 19-year-old Canadian citizen; TALHA HAROON, a 19-year-old U.S. citizen residing in Pakistan; and RUSSELL SALIC, a 37-year-old Philippine citizen, according to the Department of Justice, US Attorney’s Office, for the Southern District of New York “Unsealing of Charges.”
This recent roundup may or may not be related to the Mandalay Bay plot that was successfully carried out, Fox News believes its very interesting that these individuals were targeting concerts, New York subways and other similar venues as the Las Vegas target.
Thank God we have some great law enforcement officers that caught them.
Business Insider reports it was three men arrested, they plead guilty.
