Police officials had arrested a Baltimore man in charges with a vehicle bomb plot at a U.S. Armed Forces recruitment centre in Maryland. U.S. Justice Department said that the plot was a sting operation.
"There was no actual danger to the public as the explosives were inert and the suspect had been carefully monitored by law enforcement for months," reported Justice Department spokesman Dean Boyd.
A law enforcement official said the individual arrested was a 21-year-old male who is an American citizen and converted to be a Muslim. A court hearing is set for later on Wednesday.
