WASHINGTON (Reuters) – An Ohio man has been indicted on charges of providing material support to the Islamic State militant group & firearms & narcotics violations, the U.S. Justice Department said on Thursday.

Amir Said Rahman Al-Ghazi, 38, who changed his name from Robert McCollum earlier this year, was arrested in June after he attempted to buy an AK-47 from an undercover agent, the department said.

He is alleged to have tried to persuade others to join Islamic State & moreover expressed a desire to carry out an attack in the United States, the department said.
