A suspect is under arrest for trying to help a foreign terrorist organization plan an attack in Cleveland, Ohio on July 4, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Cleveland Division said in a press release on Monday.

“There will be a press conference held at the FBI office, Cleveland Division… to announce the arrest of an individual being charged with attempted material support of a foreign terrorist organization for planning an attack on July 4th in downtown Cleveland,” the release said.

The Washington Post reported that a suspect is a 48-year-old man, who authorities arrested on Sunday.

​Spokesperson  Mike Tobin from the US Attorney’s Office in Cleveland said the man met with someone he believed to be a member of the al-Qaeda* terrorist group to further his plot for a July 4 attack, but that was the person working for the FBI.
