Three Ohio men indicted in alleged Iraq plot


A federal grand jury has indicted three Ohio men linked to al-Qaida in Iraq leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi on terrorism charges of planning attacks overseas to try to kill U.S. and coalition military personnel in Iraq and other countries, according to U.S. officials and court documents unsealed Tuesday.

The three men, who all lived in Toledo within the last year, were arrested over the weekend, said Assistant U.S. Attorney David Bauer in Toledo. They will be arraigned in federal courts in Cleveland and Toledo Tuesday afternoon.

The recruitment took place overseas. One holds US-Jordanian citizenship, one is a US citizen born in Jordan, and the third is from Lebanon.
