FBI: Violence Plots Stopped Ahead of July 4

FBI Director James Comey (KOH'-mee) says the FBI stopped several potential acts of violence ahead of the July 4 weekend. Comey says he believes some of those caught in a flurry of pre-July 4 arrests were planning acts of violence around that weekend. The FBI and Department of Homeland Security had warned of a heightened terror threat tied to the July 4 weekend. He also said that the current crop of Islamic State sympathizers is so "unpredictable" that it's hard to be sure of the timing of their plans.
