FBI: US raid disrupts planned terror attack
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - FBI officials said on Monday that they foiled a terrorist attack that was being planned in a small western Minnesota town.
But they offered no details about the exact targets of the attack - or the motive of the man accused of having a cache of explosives and weapons in a mobile home.
The FBI said "the lives of several local residents were potentially saved" with the arrest of Buford Rogers, 24, who made his first appearance on Monday in US District Court in St. Paul on one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm.
Rogers, of Montevideo, was arrested on Friday after authorities searched a mobile home he's associated with and found Molotov cocktails, suspected pipe bombs and firearms, according to a court affidavit.
