The men involved are named as 19-year-old Abdulrahman El Bahnasawy based in Canada, 19-year-old U.S. citizen Talha Haroon arrested in Pakistan, and 37-year-old Russell Salic arrested in the Philippines.
Federal law enforcement officials say they disrupted a plot to carry out terrorist attacks at New York City locations, including concert venues, subway stations and Times Square.
Prosecutors announced Friday that three men based in Canada, Pakistan and the Philippines had conspired to carry out terror attacks in the summer of 2016 in the name of the Islamic State.
Prosecutors say 19-year-old Abdulrahman El Bahnasawy bought materials to make a bomb but was arrested after traveling to New Jersey in May of 2016.
