No doubt another fundamentalist Christian run amok. “Man arrested in mall attack plot, source says,” from CNN, with thanks to all who sent this in:
CHICAGO, Illinois (CNN) — A 22-year-old man was arrested in Chicago, Illinois, this week in connection with a plot to detonate explosives in malls, a federal law enforcement source said.
The man — described as a U.S. citizen named Derrick Shareef — faces charges for allegedly planning to set off hand grenades in garbage cans in malls during the holiday season.
He was arrested Wednesday, the source said.
A criminal complaint filed against him was unsealed Friday. He is to be charged with attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction and with planning to damage or destroy buildings by fire or explosion, the source said.
He was allegedly working by himself, and was not affiliated with a particular group, the source said. A confidential source working with the FBI alerted them to the alleged plot.
