IS backer charged
A MAN described by the FBI as an Islamic State sympathiser has been charged with plotting to detonate a backpack bomb on a Florida beach. A criminal complaint unsealed yesterday charges 23- year- old Harlem Suarez of Key West with attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction in the US. Mr Suarez came to the FBI’s attention through his online posts praising the Islamic State and containing extremist rhetoric. Mr Suarez made his first court appearance yesterday in Miami. The complaint says Mr Suarez told an FBI informant he wanted to make a timer bomb, bury it on a beach and detonate it.
