Officials say they interrupted California terror plot
By BRIAN MELLEY
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Authorities say they thwarted a terror plot targeting white supremacists in California by an Army veteran who converted to Islam and wanted retribution for the New Zealand mosque attacks.
Federal prosecutors said Monday that Mark Domingo was arrested for planning to plant a bomb at a Nazi rally Sunday in Long Beach.
Domingo was arrested Friday on a charge of providing material support to terrorists. The rally never happened.
Court papers say Domingo discussed several types of attacks with an informant that included targeting Jews, churches and police officers.
He said he wanted revenge for attacks on mosques in New Zealand that killed 50 people last month.
A message left on a phone listed for Domingo was not immediately returned.
