Detained terror suspects told interrogators that al-Qaida's top leaders approved a plot to blow up planes from Britain to the United States, a senior Pakistani intelligence agent said. Some of the suspects said No. 2-ranked Ayman al-Zawahri probably authorized the plan, the official said Thursday, speaking to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the investigation. Osama bin Laden's Egyptian-born right-hand man, believed to be hiding on the Pakistan-Afghan border, is the highest-ranked al-Qaida leader named to date in relation to what authorities called a plot to destroy trans-Atlantic jetliners with liquid explosives.
