A Brooklyn, New York resident has been charged by federal authorities for supporting terrorism, after making online postings supporting ISIS in plotting to commit an attack in Times Square similar to that in Nice, France.
The man has been identified as Mohammed Rafik Naji, 37, a legal US resident originally from Yemen, according to NBC News investigative reporter Tom Winter.
Naji made several online posts in support of Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL), Winter said, citing the federal complaint.
