NEW YORK - Jose Pimentel, an American Muslim convert accused of building a pipe bomb, has been formally indicted by a grand jury on terrorism charges, authorities said on Wednesday.

Pimentel, 27, will appear in a Manhattan court on March 13 to enter a plea on the charges, which include weapons and conspiracy counts. The indictment was released by the Manhattan district attorney's office.Pimentel, a Dominican-born US citizen, was arrested in November after a police informant secretly recorded meetings with Pimentel over several months as he bought bomb-making materials and read online instructions on how to assemble them, according to court documents.

Authorities have said he planned to attack post offices, police stations and military personnel in and around New York City.
