PHOENIX An Arizona grand jury has indicted an accused Islamic State sympathizer charged with plotting to bomb a state motor vehicle department office in the Phoenix area, prosecutors said on Thursday.

The suspect, Mahin Khan, 18, of Tucson, was arrested on July 1 by FBI agents and local law enforcement in an investigation stemming from a tip by citizens who alerted authorities to suspicious behavior, according to a statement from the Arizona attorney general's office.
