Ill. Man Charged With Trying to Bomb Chicago Bar - News
A federal judge refused bond to a suburban Chicago man charged with trying to bomb a downtown bar, contending he was a danger to the community.
The U.S. attorney’s office says Adel Daoud was indicted Thursday on charges of attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction and attempting to damage or destroy a building by means of an explosive.
Daoud, who turns 19 on Friday, was arrested last week after authorities said he tried to trigger a fake mechanism set up by the FBI as a part of a sting.
Court documents say Daoud told an undercover agent he was pursuing the attack because the U.S. was at war ”with Islam and Muslims.”
