CHICAGO (AP) — Two Chicago men accused of planning a violent attack on a Danish newspaper and laying the groundwork for the 2008 attack in the Indian city of Mumbai have been indicted on federal terrorism charges.

The indictment against David Coleman Headley (HED’-lee) and Tahawwur (tuh-HOW’-ur) Hussain Rana was unsealed Thursday. A retired Pakistani military officer and the leader of a Pakistan-based terrorist organization also were indicted.

Headley already had been charged in connection with the Mumbai attacks but the indictment added Rana as an alleged conspirator in planning the bloody rampage.
