U.S. officials say they frustrated an Iranian plot to use a weapon of mass destruction on American soil. The targets may have included Israel’s embassy here.

Attorney General Eric Holder on Tuesday outlined charges filed in New York City against two men -- an Iranian American and an Iranian. The Iranian American is in custody, while the Iranian is at large.

Holder alleged that the plot involved a plan to hire members of the Mexican drug cartel to kill the Saudi Arabian ambassador to Washington.
