5 suspects held in Ohio bridge bombing plot plead not guilty in federal court
CLEVELAND (AP) ' Five men accused of plotting to bomb a highway bridge near Cleveland have entered not guilty pleas.
The five are described by the government as self-proclaimed anarchists. They appeared Monday at a preliminary hearing in a Cleveland federal court.
The FBI says the five were arrested last week after setting the codes for what they thought would be an explosion to destroy a bridge south of Cleveland. But the bomb was a fake arranged by an FBI informant.
One defense attorney calls it a case of entrapment, with the informant guiding the way.
