Oregon — A 19-year-old Somali-American man has pleaded not guilty to an alleged plot to blow up a car bomb at a Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Oregon.

Mohamed Osman Mohamud entered the plea Monday in federal court.

An indictment filed earlier in the day charged him with attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction.

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

A judge set a tentative trial date for Feb. 1.
