Ford County trio suspected of bombing mosque, trying to bomb abortion clinic

According to an affidavit obtained by Fox 9, McWhorter allegedly told an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent during an interview that the three rented a pickup in Champaign and drove to Minnesota with a plan to bomb the mosque, according to a criminal complaint.

Hari also filed a federal lawsuit last month in Central Illinois, naming the US secretaries of agriculture and health and human services as defendants.

Fellow suspect Hari also previously told the Chicago Tribune in April 2017 how he planned to build President Donald Trump's border wall with Mexico for around $10 billion.

McWhorter originally denied having any knowledge of the bombing, but according to the complaint, he later admitted that each person had a role in the mosque bombing with Hari as the driver, Morris smashing the window, and McWhorter throwing the bomb.

According to a 16-page probable cause statement filed in U.S. District Court in Urbana, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives received a tip February 19 about potential bomb-making materials at the home of Hari's parents in Clarence. The suspect told investigators he and the others did not intend to kill anyone in the mosque but wanted "to scare them (Muslims) out of the country".

Hari is said to have promised to pay Morris and McWhorter $18,0000 for carrying out the attack.

Bloomington police said the bomb only damaged the imam's office at the center and worshippers extinguished the blaze before firefighters arrived.

According to the affidavit, Mr. McWhorter told a law enforcement official that during the attempted bombing at the Women's Heath Practice in Champaign, Ill., Mr. Morris had been dropped off at the clinic in the middle of the night, smashed the clinic window and thrown an explosive device inside.

A witness outside the mosque heard the sound of breaking glass and saw a man get into a dark pickup truck.

The Justice Department said Wednesday that law enforcement had received a tip from a confidential source in January that Hari, McWhorter and Morris were behind the bombing.

The incident was similar to the attempted bomb attack at an abortion clinic three months later.

Asad Zaman, executive director of the Muslim American Society of Minnesota, called on Minnesotans to call out anti-Muslim sentiments within the community.

The Islamic Center primarily serves Somalis in the Minneapolis area and houses a mosque and religious school for children.

"That bombing that took place last summer has been a tragedy for all Minnesotans", said Greg Brooker, acting U.S. Attorney for the District of Minnesota.
