Man Planning To Detonate Bombs Arrested In New York
New York resident Jose Pimental, described as a “lone wolf,” was arrested in New York. The 27-year-old was allegedly motivated by the death of American-born cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, whom he admired.
The intended targets …were U.S. military personnel who had served in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as U.S. postal facilities and police in New York and Bayonne, New Jersey, according to Bloomberg and Police Commissioner Ray Kelly.
The suspect was described by Bloomberg as an “al Qaeda sympathizer,” though he is not believed to have ever worked with or received training from anyone in that terrorist organization.
