(Newser) – Two more men have been arrested in Chicago on terrorism-related charges, reports the Chicago Tribune. Sebastian Senakiewicz, a 24-year-old Chicago resident, was charged yesterday with a single count of terrorism/false threat after being arrested on Thursday, for "planning/conspiring in the building of explosives, including molotov cocktails which were to be used/detonated during the NATO summit," according to a police report. Mark Neiweem, 28, also of Chicago, is charged with attempted possession of explosive devices after he allegedly provided an ingredient list for an explosive device. Both men have minor criminal records.

The arrests came a day after three out-of-town men were accused of plotting to bomb President Obama's campaign headquarters, Rahm Emanuel's house, and other targets. Asked if the incidents were related, a Chicago police spokesman tells Reuters, "That's being investigated." Senakiewicz is being held on $750,000 bond and Neiweem on $500,000.
