The father of an Afghan immigrant accused of plotting a terror attack in New York City pleaded not guilty to a charge of lying to investigators. Fifty-three-year-old Mohammed Zazi walked into court wearing a black pinstripe suit Friday and entered his plea through his federal public defender, Edward Harris. Zazi was indicted Thursday for allegedly making a false statement in a matter involving terrorism. Zazi was arrested last month on that charge pending a grand jury indictment and he is free on $50,000 bail and under electronic monitoring. Zazi's son, Najibullah Zazi, is being held without bond in New York. He has pleaded not guilty to a charge of conspiring to detonate explosives in the United States.
