Guilty Plea For VA Man Accused In US Capitol Bomb Plot

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) - A Moroccan accused in an alleged bomb plot against the U.S. Capitol has pleaded guilty.
    
Federal prosecutors say Amine El Khalifi appeared in a district court for a plea hearing Friday.
    
El Khalifi was charged in February after a year-long undercover FBI investigation. He was arrested in a parking lot, wearing what he thought was an explosive-laden suicide vest.
    
According to court documents, El Khalifi had been living illegally in the U.S. for more than a decade.
    
El Khalifi must serve at least 25 years in prison.
