Feds: Man makes Metro bomb threat online

An Arlington man is accused of making a threat on Facebook to blow up the D.C. subway system, federal authorities say.

A judge ordered a mental evaluation for Awais Younis on Tuesday. He was arrested last week on charges of communicating threats across state lines.

A sworn statement from an FBI agent says Mr. Younis told a friend on the social-networking site that he could use pipe bombs to kill people on the Metro system and in the District’s Georgetown neighborhood. The friend alerted the FBI.

Mr. Younis also made threats online against the friend.
