ISIS-Linked Brit Plotted Attack on US Troops: Officials

A British delivery driver with connections to suspected ISIS fighters was convicted Friday of planning a "terrorist" attack against U.S. troops in England, NBC News reported.

Junead Khan, 25, planned to stage a traffic accident with American military personnel, then attack them with knives and potentially detonate a bomb, Britain's Metropolitan Police said. He allegedly discussed ways of carrying out the attack with an ISIS militant in Syria and was arrested in July. 

When police raided Khan's home, they found an ISIS-style black flag and a laptop containing an article from an al-Qaida magazine entitled "Make a bomb in the kitchen of your mom," according to NBC News.

Khan and his 23-year-old uncle, Shazib Khan, were also convicted of preparing to join ISIS in Syria.
