WACO (AP) - A soldier accused of planning to blow up a Texas restaurant frequented by Fort Hood soldiers is expected in federal court.

Pfc. Naser Jason Abdo is scheduled for a probable cause hearing Thursday in Waco. The 21-year-old was arrested last week at a hotel near the Army post.

Investigators say Abdo had a handgun and ingredients for an explosive device. He’s being held without bond.

Abdo was approved as a conscientious objector this year after citing his Muslim beliefs. But that status was put on hold after he was charged with possessing child pornography. Last month, he went absent without leave from Kentucky’s Fort Campbell.

After a hearing last week, Abdo shouted the name of the soldier charged in the 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood that killed 13 people.
