Federal prosecutors say two Alabama men who they say wanted to wage violent jihad overseas have been arrested on terrorism charges.

Authorities say Mohammad Abdul Rahman Abukhdair and Randy Wilson are both named in terrorism charges filed Monday in Mobile. Both are 25 and from Mobile.

Prosecutors say Abukhdair was arrested at a bus terminal in Augusta, Ga., and Wilson was stopped in Atlanta while attempting to board a flight for Morocco.

Authorities say the men met online in 2010. Wilson allegedly told an FBI employee that he and the other man planned to travel overseas to participate in violent jihad.

Court records don't show whether either man has an attorney.

They are charged with conspiring to provide material support to terrorists with plans to kill people outside the United States.
