Ellis Co. resident jailed in bomb plot

An Italy resident was arrested on an FBI complaint for allegedly rolling a car bomb inside a Ford Explorer to the Fountain Place building in Dallas on Thursday.
Hosam Maher Husein Smadi, a 19-year-old Jordanian citizen living in Italy in Ellis County, had been communicating with federal investigators involved in the case since late March, and federal agents supplied Smadi with fake explosives for the planned attack Thursday.

Federal agents monitoring online “extremist” Web sites discovered Smadi allegedly supporting and encouraging jihadist activity six months ago, according to the FBI’s complaint. Authorities communicated with Smadi more than 10 times over about two months, during which time he made clear his desire to serve as a soldier for Osama Bin Laden and al Qaida, the complaint states.
