Prosecutors: Florida man plotted New York terrorist attack

FORT LAUDERDALE - A Pakistani-born man plotted to detonate a bomb in New York City to avenge the deaths of people killed by drone attacks in Afghanistan but failed to raise enough money to carry out the scheme, a federal prosecutor said on Tuesday.
Raees Alam Qazi, 20, was arrested along with his brother, Sheheryar Alam Qazi, 30, in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on Nov. 29. The brothers, both naturalized US citizens, are charged with providing support to terrorists and conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction.
Both have pleaded not guilty.
