NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

A Nashville woman accused of making terrorist threats is being held in medical isolation in jail after being diagnosed with possible tuberculosis.

Amal Abdullahi, 29, was set to appear before a judge Wednesday morning on a charge of attempted terrorism.

Instead, her attorney, Charles Reed, said she had been quarantined because of a medical condition.

"She's being monitored for ruling out TB, apparently," he told the judge.  "She came up with a possible positive TB test."

Abdullahi was arrested last Friday after Metro police said she told a co-worker that America was full of unbelievers who should die and that she should, "pick up a gun and shoot" her other co-workers.

Police said she also told him she was ready to die for Allah.

Abdullahi was employed as a temp worker at CEVA Logistics.

She is being held on a $50,000 bond.
