FBI agents arrested two U.S. citizens accused of trying to leave the U.S. for North Africa “to wage violent jihad,” The Los Angeles Times reports.

The 25-year-old residents, Mohammad Abdul Rahman Abukhdair and Randy Wilson, were charged Tuesday with conspiring to kill people outside the U.S.

The L.A. Times reports the men met online two yeas ago, once opened a men’s fragrance store in Alabama and ultimately planned to wage war in the name of Islam.

The men were busted after an undercover FBI source were told of their plans to use falsify passports and join terrorists in Morocco or Mauritania.
