OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A federal prosecutor says two people have been indicted in Oklahoma for making a terrorist hoax and conspiracy.

U.S. Attorney Sanford Coats says 19-year-old Israa Jafar Ali of Oklahoma City and 23-year-old Sajjad Hussein Al Fehaidah of Saudi Arabia were indicted on Wednesday by a federal grand jury in Oklahoma City.

The indictment alleges that Ali called Edmond police in September from a phone provided by her boyfriend, Al Fenaidah, and claimed a male Saudi Arabian international student would commit a suicide bombing at a church near the University of Central Oklahoma campus in Edmond to kill a number of people. Authorities say the call was to retaliate against the unnamed student.

If convicted, each defendant faces up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine on each count.
