Kenyan Was Training for 9/11-Style Hijacking, Prosecutors Say
(Bloomberg) -- A Kenyan national was training to be a pilot in the Philippines as part of an alleged 9/11-style plot to hijack a commercial plane and fly it into a U.S. building, prosecutors said.
The U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York unsealed an indictment against Cholo Abdi Abdullah, who they say was a member of the al Shabaab terror network. Abdullah is due to appear in a Manhattan courtroom Wednesday.
