Four men accused of plotting terrorist attacks on military facilities and synagogues are set for trial next year, federal prosecutors said Monday.

A judge has set an Oct. 24, 2006, trial date in the case. In August, a federal indictment accused the men of conspiring to wage war against the U.S. government through terrorism, among other charges.

Police uncovered the alleged plot while investigating a string of gas station robberies.

During the robbery probe, authorities found what they believe was a target list including three California National Guard facilities, the Israeli Consulate (search) in Los Angeles and several synagogues.

Named in the indictment were Levar H. Washington (search), 25; Gregory V. Patterson (search) and Hammad Riaz Samana (search), both 21; and Kevin James (search), 29, an inmate at the California State Prison, Sacramento.

All but Samana, a Pakistani national, are American born and Muslim converts.

Attorneys for the men did not return messages left after business hours Monday.
