An undercover operation has led to the arrest of a suspected terrorist in Chicago.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation said an undercover agent provided 22-year old Sami Hassoun with a backpack full of fake explosives.

He then charged the device and dropped it in a trash can outside a busy bar near Chicago's Wrigley Field.

Terrorism task force members arrested him shortly after planting the fake device.

Hassoun is a Lebanese citizen who's lived in Chicago for nearly three years.  The agent in charge says Hassoun was attempting to kill as many people as possible.
