LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - An Army private from Fort Campbell is under arrest after allegedly threatening an attack on Fort Hood in Texas.

Private First Class Naser Abdo was charged with possession of child pornography, but went absent without leave after his first hearing on those charges.

When he was arrested near Fort Hood, authorities found explosives when they searched his room.

According to the Army, Abdo, who has applied for conscientious objector status because he claims to be a Muslim, admitted to planning an attack at Fort Hood.

Authorities are also trying to determine if Abdo has ties to an attack on Fort Hood two years ago. That attack left 13 people dead and 29 wounded.
