ISRAEL

American indicted on terror charges

Israel indicted an American citizen on charges of planning terrorist attacks against Muslim holy sites in the country, police said Tuesday.

Israeli authorities identified the suspect as Adam Livix, 30, of Texas. He was arrested last month after a joint operation of police and Israel's Shin Bet security agency, they said.

Livix, who was indicted Sunday, has been charged with possessing weapons, obstructing police work, and being in Israel illegally.

He entered Israel on March 2013 on a tourist visa that expired the following September. - L.A. Times

Typhoon Hagupit dissipated into a tropical depression after crossing Lubang Island, 85 miles southwest of Manila.
