Terror Investigation: Feds Investigating Najibullah Zazi's Contacts In Queens

AP | TOM HAYS and DEVLIN BARRETT | Posted 05.25.2011 | Denver

Three suspects charged in a wide-ranging terror probe are going to court in New York City and Denver.

Colorado air shuttle driver Najibullah Zazi (nah-jee-BOO'-lah ZAH'-zee) and his father have detention hearings later Thursday in Denver. A New York City imam, Ahmad Afzali (AKH'-mahd ahf-ZAH'-lee), has a hearing in New York City.

The three were charged last week with lying to FBI investigators trying to uncover a possible plot to detonate homemade bombs. Officials remain unsure of the scope or target of a possible terror attack.

They're casting a wide net to try and determine who might be connected to Zazi, who authorities have linked to al-Qaida. Hundreds of investigators are back at a Queens neighborhood that was the site of antiterror raids over a week ago.
