Arwa Muthana, 30, of Hoover, Alabama, and James Bradley aka Abdullah, 21, of the Bronx, pleaded guilty to one count of attempting to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization.

Their guilty pleas were secured as a result of monthslong surveillance by undercover law enforcement officers, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York.
