A suburban Chicago man awaiting trial on terrorism charges has been indicted on new charges of assaulting a fellow inmate at a federal jail in Chicago.

Adel Daoud appeared in U.S. District Court on Tuesday for an initial hearing in the new case. He faces five counts related to the alleged assault, including that he used a makeshift weapon and that the alleged victim was seriously injured.

Other details were not available. Attorneys were still in court and not immediately available for comment.

Daoud has denied that he accepted a phony car bomb from an undercover FBI agent, parked it by a downtown Chicago bar and pressed a trigger. He's also accused of trying to have that FBI agent killed following his arrest.
