Well Integrated Muslim Student Munther Omar Saleh Arrested for Plotting Terrorist Attacks in New York

NEW YORK (WABC)—A 20 year old college student from Queens has been arrested for allegedly taking steps to plan to attack targets in the metropolitan area on behalf of ISIS.

Munther Omar Saleh appeared in federal court Saturday following a three month federal investigation.

Saleh conducted online searches on building explosives and was eluding law enforcement, authorities say. He was arrested earlier this month near the Whitestone Bridge.
