Thirty-two year-old Sheheryar Alam Qazi and 22-year-old Raees Alam Qazi appeared before U.S. District Judge Beth Bloom on Thursday morning for a change-of-plea hearing as part of a plea deal. In this plea agreement, Raees Alam Qazi admitted to traveling to Manhattan in 2012 to scout major landmarks and set off a massive bomb. He aborted the mission when he ran out of money. He was arrested after returning to Broward County, Florida, where the brothers lived.

The men previously pleaded not guilty to several terrorism-related charges, including conspiracy to provide material support. The brothers are also charged with assaulting two U.S. Marshals while being escorted in the Miami court complex. On Thursday, they both plead guilty to that charge.
