Second Suspect In NYC Terror Probe Due In Court

NEW YORK -- His lawyer says a second suspect linked to an alleged terror plot is due in court today to face charges.

Adis Medunjanin was arrested early yesterday after he had a traffic accident while under surveillance.

Authorities say he has links to an alleged al-Qaida associate who is accused of plotting to attack New York City with homemade bombs.

His former classmate has pleaded not guilty to a false statement charge accusing him of lying to the FBI about a trip to Pakistan and Afghanistan.

Law enforcement officials familiar with the case say that Medunjanin faces more serious terror charges and will likely be accused of seeking training from a terrorist organization.

The two men were first publicly linked to the investigation in September, when investigators raided their homes shortly before the arrest of Najibullah Zazi.

Zazi is a Colorado airport shuttle driver who has pleaded not guilty to supporting terrorism.
