WASHINGTON (Reuters) - An Ohio man was arrested on Wednesday for plotting an attack on the U.S. Capitol, according to court documents.

An FBI agent thwarted the plan after Christopher Cornell researched the construction of pipe bombs, purchased a firearm and 600 rounds of ammunition and made plans to travel to Washington to execute the plan.
