Posted on May 2, 2016 In News

The FBI arrested a man allegedly planning on attacking a Miami-area synagogue with an explosive device, a south Florida news station reported late Sunday.

The man, who was not named in the report but is expected to appear in federal court on Monday, had planned to attack the Aventura Turnberry Jewish Center on Friday evening, according to WSVN.com.

There was no immediate FBI confirmation of the report.

The suspect apparently plotted to throw an explosive device over a wall and into the synagogue grounds during Friday night services, as congregants would have been marking the start of Shabbat and the final day of Passover.
