Feds Arrest Man in Suicide-Bomb Plot

The FBI and Capitol Police announced the arrest Friday of a man who was allegedly planning a suicide bombing on Capitol Hill. The arrest was “the culmination of a lengthy and extensive operation during which the individual was closely and carefully monitored,” the Capitol Police said in a press release, but “at no time was the public or congressional community in any way in danger.” The investigation, which reportedly included FBI agents who posed as al Qaeda operatives, ended when the suspect was snagged near the Labor Department with what officials say was a vest packed with faux explosives.
