A Yemeni man living in New York City has been charged with attempting to provide support to the Islamic State group, say US authorities.

Mohammed Rafik Naji, 37, had expressed support for an attack in Times Square, according to a criminal complaint.

The 37-year-old, who lives in Brooklyn, was charged on Monday, said a spokeswoman for the FBI.

Times Square was the site of a failed car bomb attempt in 2010 carried out by a 30-year-old Connecticut resident.

A paid police informant made contact with Mr Naji in August 2015.

Suspicions had been aroused after he flew to Turkey with the alleged ambition of joining Islamic State in Yemen.
