Jihad week activities seem to have moved closer to home as police on Friday night arrested Adel Daoud, 18, of Hillside, Ill., after he allegedly tried to detonate a car bomb outside of a Chicago bar.

Daoud was charged Saturday with trying to use a weapon of mass destruction and trying to destroy a building using explosives. Prosecutors said Daoud came to the attention of the FBI after making online posts which “expressed an interest in engaging in violent jihad.”¬†Undercover federal agents arranged to meet with Daoud and supplied him with fake bomb materials. Daoud reportedly had compiled a list of potential targets including military recruiting centers, bars, malls and Chicago area tourist attractions.
