Oklahoma City (AP) — The Latest on the Oklahoma bomb plot (all times local):
Oklahoma's senior U.S. senator says law enforcement authorities "prevented a hateful act of domestic terrorism" by foiling a plot to bomb an Oklahoma City bank.
Sen. Jim Inhofe said Monday the plot that ended Saturday with the arrest of a 23-year-old man could have mirrored the 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, which killed 168 people and injured hundreds more. Inhofe says he's grateful authorities prevented it without putting the community at risk.
