US police arrest man who planned acts of 'jihad'
A man who authorities said wanted to commit acts of "violent jihad" was charged Friday in a plot to set off hand grenades in garbage cans at a shopping mall, authorities said. Derrick Shareef, 22, of Rockford, Illinois, was arrested Wednesday when he met with an undercover agent in a parking lot to trade a set of stereo speakers for four hand grenades and a handgun. Shareef was acting alone and not in concert with any terrorist group, authorities said.
