A federal indictment unsealed Thursday in Arizona charges Dennis and Daniel Mahon with conspiracy to damage buildings and property by means of explosive.

The indictment says the brothers intended to "promote racial discord" on behalf of the White Aryan Resistance.

The package detonated in Don Logan's hands on Feb. 26, 2004, in the city's Human Resources Complex. The blast injured Logan's hand and arm.

Authorities arrested the brothers in their Davis Junction, Ill., home and say they had assault weapons, hundreds of rounds of ammunition and white supremacist material.

Authorities didn't know if the brothers had attorneys. There are no telephone numbers listed for Mahon in Davis Junction.
