A US citizen dubbed a "lone wolf" terrorist and Al-Qaeda sympathizer has pleaded guilty to plotting to bomb targets in New York and kill US soldiers, prosecutors said Wednesday.
Jose Pimentel, 29, a Muslim convert born in the Dominican Republic, will be sentenced on March 25, the New York district attorney's office said.
The charges carry a maximum sentence of life.
Pimentel was arrested by the bomb squad in November 2011 after being under surveillance by New York police for about two years.
