4 Arrested and 23 Guns Seized in Plot Against Muslim Enclave in Upstate N.Y.

The New York Times’s Michael Gold reports that four suspects were arrested for allegedly plotting to attack Islamberg, a rural Muslim community in upstate New York. Authorities said that they recovered 23 firearms and three homemade bombs from three young men and one 16-year-old individual. Gold writes, “Over the past several years, Islamberg has been attacked by anti-Muslim groups and some right-wing conspiracy theorists, who have said that the town is actually a terrorist training camp despite its peaceful history.”
