Alleged teen terrorist Adel Daoud accused of trying to have FBI agent killed

August 28, 2013 (CHICAGO)

Adel Daoud, 19, was charged Thursday with murder-for-hire and attempted murder.

Prosecutors say back in September of 2012, Daoud allegedly tried to detonate a bomb outside a downtown bar. An undercover agent who was posing as a terrorist said he would supply Daoud with explosives.

Following the teen's arrest for that incident, prosecutors say he then tried to have the undercover agent killed.

Daoud's attorney told the I-Team on Thursday these allegations come from an "unreliable street gang jailhouse informant" and that Daoud looks forward to his day in court.
