A Guyanese judge denied bail Wednesday for two sons of a suspect accused of plotting to bomb New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport, ordering the pair to remain in jail on charges of illegal possession of ammunition. Kareem and Iqra Kadir, sons of plot suspect Abdul Kadir, 55, a former opposition legislator in Guyana, pleaded not guilty when they made their first court appearance before Magistrate Judge Melissa Robertson-Ogle on the illegal munitions charge. Prosecutors said a single round of ammunition for a high-powered rifle, which the brothers were not licensed to own, was found hidden at their home in the eastern Guyanese city of Linden during a search by local police and FBI agents on Sunday.
