BROOKLYN (PIX11) — Three Brooklyn men were arrested for allegedly attempting to join ISIS and carry out attacks on the U.S. — including planting a bomb on Coney Island — if they were not able to travel overseas, according to FBI officials.
The men were arrested Wednesday by the FBI and members of the Joint Terrorism Task Force.
The suspects have been identified as Abdurasul Juraboev, 24; Akhror Saidakhmetov, 19; and Abror Habibov, 30. They face charges that include providing material support for terrorists, authorities said.
An official added that it appears the three men had plans to carry out attacks in the U.S. if they were unable to join ISIS overseas. Officials say their plans also included killing President Obama, killing FBI agents and planting a bomb on Coney Island — all if ordered to do so by ISIS.
