"NEW YORK (AP) Seized from a plane about to fly to the Middle East, a Pakistan
-born man admitted training to make bombs
at a terrorism camp in his native land before he rigged an SUV with a homemade device to explode in Times Square
, authorities said Tuesday.
"Faisal Shahzad, a naturalized U.S. citizen who recently spent five months in Pakistan, was arrested on terrorism and weapons of mass destruction charges for trying to blow up the crude gasoline-and-propane bomb amid tourists and theatergoers Saturday evening.
"He was in custody after being hauled off a Dubai
-bound plane at Kennedy Airport
that he had been able to board Monday night despite being placed on the federal "no-fly" list. Authorities had planned to arrest Shahzad, who had been under constant watch from mid-afternoon, at his Connecticut
home, but lost track of him, two people familiar with the probe told The Associated Press. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to talk publicly about the breach in surveillance."
