Federal authorities were searching Tuesday for a US citizen charged with plotting "violent jihad" as part of a North Carolina group suspected of international terrorist aspirations. US Attorney George E.B. Holding declined to discuss the whereabouts of the person at large but said the public should not be worried. "Federal authorities hope to have him apprehended shortly," Holding said without elaborating. Holding wouldn't identify the person, and the defendant's name is redacted from court papers. The indictment said the person went to Pakistan in October to "engage in violent jihad." It does not say whether the person returned to the United States. On Monday, US federal authorities said a father, his two sons and four other men living in North Carolina are accused of military-style training at home and plotting "violent jihad" abroad, including against targets in Israel.
