NEW YORK - Prosecutors said on Monday they were considering a plea deal for Jose Pimentel, an American accused of building a pipe bomb and targeting police stations, military personnel and post offices around New York City.

Pimentel, 27, whose case is only the second prosecuted by the Manhattan district attorney's office under state anti-terrorism laws passed after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, had expected to hear on Monday whether he would be indicted on terrorism, conspiracy and weapons charges.

But in a brief court appearance, prosecutors and defense lawyers agreed to postpone the case until March 1.

Between now and then, both sides indicated, the lawyers will discuss potential plea offers.
