Grand jury indicts Colorado man in terror plot

NEW YORK – A federal grand jury has charged the father of an airport driver accused in a terrorism plot with conspiring to obstruct a criminal investigation of the matter.

A newly unsealed indictment says Mohammed Wali Zazi conspired to conceal and destroy chemicals, glasses and masks in a terrorism probe. His son Najibullah Zazi was charged in September with plotting to attack New York City with homemade bombs.

The indictment accuses Mohammed Zazi of obstructing the investigation by conspiring with others to destroy or conceal glasses, liquid chemicals and containers.

Mohammed Zazi lives in Colorado. He has a court appearance set for Monday afternoon in Denver. A New York court date hasn’t been set.
