CHICAGO (AFP) - A US soldier of Palestinian descent was indicted on weapons charges related to a plot to build a bomb and attack the area surrounding a sprawling Texas military base, officials said Tuesday. Army Private Naser Abdo, 21, had gathered everything he needed to build a bomb and carry out the attack when he was arrested in a hotel near Fort Hood on July 27, FBI agents testified last week. Abdo admitted he planned to build two bombs in his budget hotel room by packing gun powder and shrapnel into pressure cookers he would then detonate at a restaurant popular with soldiers, court records showed.
