PORTLAND, Oregon — A federal grand jury on Monday indicted a Somali-American man in an alleged plot to blow up a car bomb at a Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Portland, Oregon.

The indictment filed charges 19-year-old Mohamed Osman Mohamud with attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction.

The teen was arrested Friday evening near the crowded Pioneer Courthouse Square in downtown Portland, amid a FBI sting operation that followed months of investigation.

Mohamud was due in federal court for a hearing later Monday.
