Tampa bomb suspect indicted by grand jury
News

TAMPA, Florida (AP) - Federal prosecutors say a grand jury has indicted a Pinellas Park man on charges of attempting to use weapons of mass destruction in connection with an alleged militant Islamic plot.

The U.S. Attorney's Office announced 25-year-old Sami Osmakac's indictment Thursday. He was arrested Jan. 7 by federal agents after authorities say he bought explosive devices and firearms from an undercover agent. The items were disabled prior to the sale.

Authorities say Osmakac planned to use a car bomb and other weapons in an Islamist-inspired attack in Tampa.

Officials say he was also indicted on a charge of possession of an unregistered machine gun.

A senior official in Kosovo said last month that Osmakac met with radical Islamists during visits to his native country.
