Ahmed Ferhani, who is suspected of plotting to bomb synagogues and churches in Manhattan, pleaded guilty to terror charges on Tuesday, AFP reported.

The 27-year-old Algerian native Ferhani conspired with 21-year-old Moroccan native Mohamed Mamdouh to disguise himself as a Jew in order to infiltrate synagogues in New York and plant bombs in them. The two also allegedly said they would attack the Empire State Building, according to AFP.

Ferhani will be sentence on January 30.
