Federal prosecutors announced on Friday that three men had been arrested in connection with an alleged ISIS-inspired plot to target New York City concerts, landmarks, and subways in 2016. Acting U.S. Attorney Joon H. Kim said that Abdulrahman El Bahnasawy, a 19-year-old Canadian citizen, Talha Haroon, a 19-year-old U.S. citizen based in Pakistan and Russell Salic, a 37-year-old Philippines citizen were all arrested on terror-related charges.
