WASHINGTON, July 22 (Xinhua) — Three men in the U.S. state of Florida have been arrested on charges of conspiring to join the terror group Islamic State (IS), local media reported Friday.

The three, all residents of Palm Beach County, were charged with conspiring and attempting to provide material support and resources to IS, according to a complaint filed in a federal court.

It was reported that the three regularly met last year with an informant from the Federal Bureau of Investigation on plans to travel to Syria to join IS.

They reportedly "praised" the terror attacks in the United States and elsewhere, including those in Orlando, Florida and San Bernardino, California.

The three had discussed attacking U.S. military personnel living in their neighborhood and even considered attacking the White House, the reports said.
