Munther Omar Saleh, 21, of Queens, and Fareed Mumuni, 22, of Staten Island, were charged with "conspiring and attempting to provide material support" to ISIS and with assaulting and conspiring to assault federal officers, the US Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of New York said in a statement.
Mumuni also was charged with "attempted murder of federal officers." That charge resulted from an incident in which Mumuni repeatedly stabbed an FBI agent as law enforcement officials carried out a search warrant at his home about two years ago, officials said.
"From their respective homes in Queens and Staten Island, Saleh and Mumuni conspired to place a pressure cooker bomb in the New York metro area on behalf of ISIL," he said, using another term for ISIS.
"Saleh and Mumuni engaged in plotting attacks against New York City in the name of ISIL," New York Police Commissioner James P. O'Neill said. "They received instructions from senior ISIL leaders in Syria. They were committed to violence."

Should pressure cookers not be allowed to enter the country?
It should be mandatory that they be made in the USA and have auto-tracking built in.
