LUBBOCK, Texas - A Saudi student accused of plotting to build and detonate bombs against targets including the Dallas home of former US President George W. Bush was declared competent to stand trial on Tuesday by a federal judge.

The ruling clears the way for Khalid Aldawsari, 21, to stand trial on April 30 in Lubbock, Texas, on a charge of attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction.

Aldawsari's attorneys last year filed intent to use an insanity defense and said he was incompetent.
