BREAKING: FBI Arrests Florida College Student Accused of Planning Two Terror Attacks

The FBI has reportedly arrested a college student they say had been planning two terrorist attacks against college deans, WSVN-TV reports.

FBI agents reportedly arrested Salman Rashid, who is accused of planning two attacks involving weapons of mass destruction against the deans of the Miami-Dade and Broward colleges that he was suspended from or expelled.

An investigation into Rashid began in April of 2018 based on his Facebook posts and conversations with undercover agents who he thought were members of ISIS.

Investigators said Rashid “advocated for the violent overthrow of democracy and the establishment of Islamic law, and without provocation, Rashid solicited a confidential human source to contact members of ISIS and instruct those ISIS members to conduct a terrorist attack on Rashid’s behalf, indicating an attack on religious building or nightclub will be suitable.”

Rashid claimed in court to be a substitute teacher, but it is unknown what schools he may have taught at.
