Canadian among 3 arrested in NYC terror plot case

USA law enforcement officials say a 19-year-old Mississauga man is one of three men accused of plotting to bomb a busy location in New York City during Ramadan in 2016. "El Bahnasawy planned to build the explosive devices and prepare for the NYC Attacks with Haroon and the (undercover officer) at a rural cabin within driving distance of New York City", a charge sheet released Friday afternoon by the acting U.S. Attorney of Manhattan reads. Those arrested are: Abdulrahman El Bahnasawy, 19, a Canadian citizen; Talha Haroon, 19, a US citizen residing in Pakistan; and Russell Salic, 37, a Philippine citizen. He has pleaded guilty to terrorism offenses and is awaiting sentencing.

The would-be terrorists wanted to wound as many people as possible in attacks they were planning for the summer of 2016, officials said.

"I wanna kill. them in thousands" he allegedly told the undercover.

"These Americans need an attack", El Bahnasawy allegedly told the undercover agent, adding that he aspired to "create the next 9/11". The three conspirators also wanted to shoot patrons of local concerts. He reportedly described his plan by saying, "We just walk in with guns in our hands. That's how the Paris guys did it", he allegedly told the undercover agent. He had traveled from Canada, where court records said he purchased bomb-making materials that he shipped to the undercover Federal Bureau of Investigation agent with whom he expressed an intention of carrying out Paris-and-Brussels-like attacks.

The three wanted to "support ISIS" but their plans never got off the ground, officials said.

"That's a day that will change history", he allegedly said.

After pleading guilty, El Bahnasawy is set to be sentenced on December 21. The third suspect was identified as 37-year-old Russell Salic, a citizen of the Philippines, who allegedly provided financing for the planned attacks.
