NEW YORK - Federal prosecutors on Thursday brought additional charges against two New York City women accused of planning to carry out an explosive attack in the United States.

Noelle Velentzas, 28, and Asia Siddiqui, 31, were formally indicted by a federal grand jury in Brooklyn, New York, a month after their arrest on a charge of conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction.

The indictment goes beyond that count to charge the women additionally with teaching and distributing information pertaining to the making and use of a weapon of mass destruction.

Siddiqui was also hit with a third charge of making material false statements to the FBI in July by saying she had not contributed writings to jihadist magazines or been in contact with a member of al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula.
