WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts man accused of plotting to fly explosive-packed remote-controlled model planes into the Pentagon and U.S. Capitol is expected to be in federal court for a bail hearing.
A detention hearing for Rezwan Ferdaus of Ashland is scheduled Monday in U.S. District Court in Worcester (WUS'-tur).
Prosecutors plan to ask that Ferdaus be held without bail as he awaits trial on a string of charges, including attempting to damage and destroy national defense premises and attempting to provide material support to terrorists.
The 26-year-old was arrested Wednesday after undercover federal agents delivered materials he allegedly requested, including grenades, six machine guns and what he believed was 25 pounds of C-4 explosives.
