Tried to Bomb SUPERBOWL... Another 'Peaceful' Muslim Indicted on Terror Charges
An alleged supporter of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) from Arizona has been indicted on charges that he planned to attack last year’s Super Bowl, according to court documents obtained by CNN.
The indictment alleges that Abdul Malik Abdul Kareem, who is also accused of arming and training men to attack a Prophet Mohammed cartoon contest in Texas earlier this year, plotted to set off pipe bombs at the University of Phoenix Stadium during the NFL’s championship game.
Kareem is also accused in the Wednesday indictment of providing material support to a terrorist group by accessing an ISIS document listing the names and address of U.S. service members, CNN said.
The earlier indictment alleges the 44-year-old, also known as Decarus Thomas, conspired with Elton Simpson and Nadir Soofi to attack the Muhammad Art Exhibit and Contest in Garland, Texas.
Simpson and Soofi were shot dead on May 3 by a police traffic officer who was part of the security detail at the event. The officer was wounded but survived in the attack, for which ISIS has claimed responsibility.
The trio had been allegedly conspiring to support ISIS since June 2014, with targets such as the homes of U.S. service members, military bases, shopping malls, the Super Bowl and the cartoon contest.
The indictment alleges that Simpson, Soofi and others scouted military installations in order to plan their attacks.
