WASHINGTON (AP) — Three men have been indicted on charges they targeted for attack financial institutions in New York, New Jersey and Washington, federal law enforcement officials said Tuesday. The three men, whom authorities have not yet identified, already are in custody in England. They had been picked up there last year in a separate investigation that yielded evidence they scouted the New York Stock Exchange and Citicorp Building in New York, the Prudential Building in Newark, N.J., and the International Monetary Fund in Washington, said two officials who discussed the case at this sensitive juncture only on grounds they not be publicly identified. The indictments are under court seal, they noted.
The reports did not identify the men, but sources told NBC News that they are Dhiren Barot — allegedly to be high-level al-Qaida operative known as Esa al-Hindi — and operatives Nadeem Tarmohamed and Quaisar Shaffi.
