Father of NYC airport terror suspect headed to US court

February 2, 2010 03:58

The father of an airport driver accused of trying to cook up bombs made from beauty supplies for an attack on New York City was charged Monday with trying to get rid of chemicals and other evidence.

FBI agents arrested Mohammed Wali Zazi on Monday morning on the new charges at his home in a Denver suburb after a previous charge, lying to the government, was dropped. He had been out on bail.

A new indictment unsealed in federal court in Brooklyn accused Zazi of conspiring with others to destroy or hide "glasses, masks, liquid chemicals and containers" that were evidence in a foiled terrorism plot.

At a brief court appearance in Denver on Monday, a judge ordered the transfer of Zazi — father of terrorism suspect Najibullah Zazi — to New York for a detention hearing on an unspecified date. He was to remain in federal custody until then.
