EDINBURG, Va. (AP) - An Edinburg teenager accused of planning a threat against a high school has been arrested on a terrorism charge.

The Shenandoah County Sheriff's Office says in a news release that the 17-year-old male is in custody at the Northwestern Regional Juvenile Detention Center.

The teen is a student at the school. He is charged with one count of committing, conspiring and aiding and abetting acts of terrorism.
