Announced several hours ago:
Federal authorities have arrested a Syrian refugee who was plotting to attack a Pittsburgh church, the Department of Justice announced Wednesday.
Mustafa Mousab Alowemer, 21, was charged with one count of attempting to provide material support and resources to a terror group and two counts of distributing information relating to an explosive, destructive device, or weapon of mass destruction, officials said.
Alowemer, who was admitted to the US as a refugee on Aug. 1, 2016, gave bomb-making instructions to an undercover FBI agent as part of a plot to blow up the primarily Nigerian-attended Legacy International Worship Center Christian church on Pittsburgh’s north side.
He wanted to inspire further attacks and “take revenge for our [ISIS] brothers in Nigeria,” he told FBI investigators, according to the DOJ.
Thank God they got this guy. According to the DOJ, this Syrian refugee was an ISIS sympathizer and was planning to blow up a Christian church in Pittsburgh.
The guy came into the country in 2016.

It's not that many, but I am curious how many they think there are.
