NYC attacks thwarted in 2016U.S. Federal officials unsealed charges against three men accused of plotting to carry out several attacks throughout New York in 2016.

The U.S. Department of Justice said police thwarted a plot by three men who intended to detonate bombs in Times Square and the New York City subway system and shoot civilians at various concert venues during Ramadan last year.

One of the men, 19-year-old Canadian citizen Abdulrahman El Bahnasawy, was arrested in New Jersey while preparing to carry out the attack and has already pleaded guilty to his involvement in the plot. The other two men, Talha Haroon, a 19-year-old U.S. citizen living in Pakistan and Russell Salic, 37, a Philippines citizen, were arrested overseas and the U.S. is working to have them extradited to stand trial.

The DOJ said El Bahnasawy purchased bomb-making materials and helped rent a cabin for building the devices, while Haroon met with bomb experts in Pakistan and Salic wired money to fund the plot.
