On Wednesday Hasher T. was arrested who wanted to commit an attack on the White House and other government buildings. The FBI spent a year researching the 21-year-old man.

Hasher T. wanted to use homemade explosives and an anti-tank missile for his action.

According to the FBI, the man acted alone. The American intelligence service received a tip on which the FBI instituted an investigation.

ABC News writes that the man wanted to die as a martyr. He was caught when he wanted to sell his car to an undercover agent in order to get weapons.

The suspect has already been briefly brought before. The next lawsuit is scheduled for 24 January.
