OTTUMWA, Iowa — Police in Ottumwa, Iowa, have charged a high school student with conspiracy to commit terrorism in what authorities say was a plan to "harm a number of students."

The Ottumwa Courier (http://bit.ly/uUZ7Ux ) says a 16-year-old girl was arrested on Thursday and taken to a juvenile detention center.

Police began investigating after the teen allegedly began trying to recruit other students.

Police Chief Jim Clark wouldn't say if others were aware of the girl's plan, but he says there is no further threat. The investigation is ongoing.

The Associated Press generally doesn't identify juveniles accused of a crime.
