US teenager arrested in Chicago bomb plot sting

An 18-year-old man had been arrested in the US city of Chicago on suspicion of plotting a bomb attack.

The FBI said Adel Daoud had planned to detonate a car bomb outside a bar in the city.

He had been tracked by the FBI after posting comments online about violent jihad and the killing of Americans, the Associated Press reports.

He was arrested on Friday in a sting operation, where agents posing as extremists gave him a phoney bomb.
