Colorado man faces more questioning in terror probe

Associated Press Writer

DENVER, Colorado – A man identified by law enforcement as having a possible link to al-Qaida has gone to his attorney’s office before a second round of questioning by federal agents.

Attorney Arthur Folsom says Najibullah Zazi will meet with FBI agents Thursday afternoon.

Agents questioned Zazi for hours on Wednesday. Agents also searched Zazi’s apartment and the home of his aunt and uncle, both in the east Denver suburb of Aurora.

Folsom says the 24-year-old Zazi has never met with al-Qaida operatives and isn’t involved in terrorism.

Folsom says Zazi is “simply somebody who was in the wrong place at the wrong time.”

The investigation fed fears of a possible bomb plot and led to several police raids in New York City on Monday.
