HADDONFIELD, New Jersey (AP) - Five foreign-born Muslims face new charges, including attempted murder, in a case where they stand accused of planning an attack on the U.S. military training base Fort Dix last year.

In a federal indictment handed up Tuesday in U.S. District Court, a grand jury said there was evidence that the men -- three ethnic Albanians from the former Yugoslavia, a Jordanian and a Turk -- tried to kill uniformed members of the military.

The five previously had been charged with conspiracy to commit an attack. That conspiracy charge remains.
