U.S. Fugitive Targeted Muslim Religious Sites

YERUSHALAYIM (AP/Hamodia) -

Israel has indicted a 30-year-old American fugitive from Texas for plotting to blow up Muslim religious sites in Yerushalayim.

The Ministry of Justice said Tuesday that a court had indicted Adam Everett Livix on Monday in connection with the plot and that he is now undergoing psychiatric evaluation.

It said that Livix had cooperated with his roommate, a serving soldier in the Israeli military, to obtain three pounds of explosive material to use to blow up the unidentified religious places. The ministry said the plot was discovered by a police agent in October.

Police carried out a search of his apartment and, after kicking down the door, they arrested Livvix after he jumped from his 7th story window to the 6th floor balcony below, the indictment stated.

Under interrogation, Livvix admitted to making initial preparations for terrorist attacks against Islamic sites in Israel.

He is wanted by the FBI for questioning on drug-related charges.
