Islamic Compound In New Mexico Plotted Attack On Atlanta Hospital


Suspects who lived at a New Mexico compound were planning an attack against a major Atlanta hospital, among other places, according to new court documents.

Prosecutors alleged Friday that the group had plans to attack law enforcement and “specific targets such as teachers, schools, banks and other ‘corrupt institutions,” CNN reports. Atlanta’s Grady Memorial Hospital was one specific target that came in the plans.

Five adults were arrested at the New Mexico compound earlier this month. Authorities also found 11 starving children there and the remains of one other child. One of the adult suspects, Lucas Morten, “stated he wished to die in Jihad, as a martyr.”
