A 26-year-old man who converted to Islam arrested in southern California as he plotted to bomb a rally in southern California.
Mark Domingo served in Afghanistan with the US army. He was arrested Friday after visiting a park in Long Beach where he intended to plant homemade explosive devices made with nail-filled pressure cookers in advance of a rally scheduled Sunday. Domingo says the bombing was retribution for the New Zealand mosque attacks.
No one showed up at the park Sunday, except for a large group of counter-protesters who demonstrated for peace.
