A 15-year-old boy accused of plotting an ISIS-inspired attack on Pope Francis during his upcoming visit to the U.S. was arrested by the FBI, the Daily News reported Tuesday. 

The teenager, who has not yet been identified, is accused of finding bomb-making directions on social media and then sharing them.

“The minor was inspired by [ISIS] and sought to conduct a detailed homeland attack which included multiple attackers, firearms, and multiple explosives, targeting a foreign dignitary at a high-profile event,” a joint intelligence bulletin by the FBI and Homeland Security said.

The FBI wouldn’t comment on the case.

“We are monitoring very closely threats against the pope as he comes into the United States,”  U.S. Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, said Sunday, adding that the Secret Service alerted him to an earlier thwarted plot. “We’re all very vigilant to protect him.”
