Via The Hill:
The Justice Department on Thursday announced terrorism charges against five people arrested at a New Mexico compound last year alongside a large quantity of guns and ammunition.
DOJ officials said in a press release that Jany Leveille, 36, Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, 40, Hujrah Wahhaj, 38, Subhanah Wahhaj, 36, and Lucas Morton, 41, would be charged with terrorism, kidnapping, and federal firearms offenses in addition to conspiracy charges the five are already facing.
Assistant Attorney General John Demers said at a news conference Thursday that the five were plotting to carry out attacks on federal law enforcement officials and military service members, among others. Prosecutors in New Mexico had previously accused the suspects of planning attacks against schools and officials they deemed to be “corrupt.”
“The indictment alleges that the defendants conspired to provide material support in preparation for violent attacks against federal law enforcement officers and members of the military,” said Demers, according to the news release.
