CHICAGO - Two more men have been arrested in Chicago for threatening behavior before a NATO summit, bringing to five the number of people charged with terrorism-related activities or possessing explosive devices in the days leading up to the meeting of the military alliance.

Chicago resident Sebastian Senakiewicz, 24, was accused of falsely making a terrorist threat, and Mark Neiweem, 28, also of Chicago, was charged with attempted possession of explosives or incendiary devices.



At a hearing on Sunday, Senakiewicz's bail was set at $750,000 and Neiweem's at $500,000.

Senakiewicz's arrest came a day after prosecutors said three men were caught in the act of making Molotov cocktails, which they had discussed using against President Barack Obama's campaign headquarters in Chicago, as well as Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel's home, several area financial institutions and four police stations.
