NEWARK, New Jersey — Two men who wanted to kill American troops were arrested at a New York City airport Sunday before boarding flights on their way to join a jihadist group in Somalia, authorities said.

Mohamed Mahmood Alessa, 20, and Carlos Eduardo Almonte, 26, both from New Jersey, were arrested Saturday at John F. Kennedy Airport before they could board separate flights to Egypt and then continue on to Somalia, federal officials in New Jersey and the New York Police Department said in a news release.

"I leave this time. God willing, I never come back," authorities say Alessa told the officer last year. "Only way I would come back here is if I was in the land of jihad and the leader ordered me to come back here and do something here. Ah, I love that."
