Mahin Kahn Planning On Blowing Up Government Buildings
An FBI task force on Friday arrested a Tucson man on terrorism related offenses involving a conspiracy targeting government buildings in two cities in Arizona, authorities said.
Mahin Kahn, 18, was arrested following an investigation by the FBI’s joint terrorism task force, a spokesperson for the FBI’s Phoenix field office said.
Khan faces two state counts of terrorism and conspiracy to commit terrorism, a spokesperson for the Arizona Attorney General’s Office said.
The allegations involve conspiring to commit acts of terrorism on government buildings in Phoenix and Tucson, Attorney General’s Office spokesperson Mia Garcia said.
Neither federal nor state officials would elaborate on the specifics of the allegations against Khan, citing sealed court records.
Authorities told NBC News the arrest and allegations are not related to the Independence Day weekend, and the timing of the arrest was coincidence. There are no outstanding suspects.
