Alleged Links To Al-Qaeda Detailed In Indictment

A federal indictment includes more details of the alleged terror plot that brought the arrests of seven young men in a Miami warehouse yesterday.

The men are charged with conspiring with al-Qaeda to commit acts of violence in the United States -- including the blowing-up of the Sears Tower in Chicago.

The indictment also spells-out alleged plans to blow up a federal building in Miami.

The indictment says one man recruited and trained the others, starting in November of 2005, for a "mission to wage war against the United States government."

It says the conspirators sought help from al-Qaeda, and pledged an oath to the terror group.

The seven were taken into custody yesterday when authorities swarmed the warehouse, removing a metal door with a blowtorch.
