Suspects in Bridge Bombing Plot To Appear In Court
Five men suspected of plotting to bomb a highway bridge in northeast Ohio are due back in court.
A federal magistrate judge in Cleveland scheduled a preliminary hearing Monday for the five, who are described by the government as self-proclaimed anarchists. They were indicted on three counts each.
The court also must take up the question of setting bond for the suspects. The government wants them locked up pending trial.
The FBI says the five were arrested last week after setting the codes for what they thought would be an explosion to destroy a bridge south of Cleveland. But the bomb was a fake arranged by an FBI informant.
One defense attorney calls it a case of entrapment, with the informant guiding the way.
