2 Men Arrested In NYC Terror Investigation

Two buds of Coloradan Zazi, who previously admitted being connected to alQaeda, were arrested early this a.m., thanks to a car crash.

FNC NEW YORK Two men were arrested Friday in the investigation of a bomb plot targeting New York City that previously led to charges against an airport driver.

The arrests in New York of Adis Medunjanin and Zarein Ahmedzay were part of "an ongoing investigation" by the Joint Terrorism Task Force, according to Special Agent Richard Kolko, who declined to comment further[...]

Federal investigators questioned Medunjanin, a Bosnian immigrant, and Ahmedzay, a U.S. citizen who lived in the same neighborhood in the New York City borough of Queens where Zazi used to live months ago in the terrorism probe. Their photographs were among four shown to Ahmad Wais Afzali, a Queens imam accused of tipping off Zazi that New York police detectives were looking for him, according to Afzali's attorney.
