CHICAGO (AP) - An undercover police officer at the terrorism trial of three activists has testified about how they allegedly plotted Molotov cocktail attacks at NATO’s 2012 Chicago summit.

When she posed as an activist, Nadia Chikko used the nickname “Gloves.” She testified through Friday after beginning on Tuesday.

Brian Church, Jared Chase and Brent Vincent Betterly pleaded not guilty to seeking to attack President Barack Obama’s campaign headquarters, police stations and other targets. The defense says the terrorism counts are overreach by prosecutors.

With Chikko testifying, prosecutors played secret recordings of Church allegedly asking if she’d ever seen an officer “on fire.” But the men also discuss less ominous strategies, including breaking windows with sling shots.

Church also discusses his politics, saying, “I’m so anarchist, I don’t even call myself an anarchist.”
