'Violent Jihad' Terror Plot Foiled

FBI agents arrest men accused of plotting to train terrorists overseas for future attacks in America.

One of three Southern California men accused of planning to join a mentor in Afghanistan to commit "violent jihad" had undergone a major transformation in the past two years, two people who knew him said.

Miguel Alejandro Santana Vidriales, 21, of Upland, had been a religious Catholic before turning to extremist Islamic views, according to a friend and a neighbor.

Along with Ralph Deleon, 23, of Ontario, and 21-year-old Arifeen David Gojali of Riverside, Santana is accused of plotting to join the Taliban and al-Qaida in Afghanistan. The three men - who were arrested in Chino Friday - were under the guidance of 34-year-old Sohiel Omar Kabir of Pomona, who was being detained in Afghanistan.
