WHITE PLAINS, New York — Four men accused of plotting to blow up New York synagogues and shoot a missile at military planes must not be released on bail because they pose a danger to the public, as well as a flight risk, state prosecutors argued ahead of a hearing set for Monday.

Assistant US Attorney David Raskin detailed the case against the men once again, this time in court papers opposing any bail. The men have been jailed for more than a year.

Judge Colleen McMahon was scheduled to hear arguments Monday. She set the bail hearing after she delayed the trial at the request of prosecutors, who were dealt a setback on evidence.

James Cromitie, 44, Onta Williams, 32, David Williams, 28, and Laguerre Payen, 27, are accused of placing what they thought were bombs outside two Bronx synagogues last year.
