Two federal law enforcement officials say the Times Square bomb suspect claimed he received financial support from the Pakistani Taliban for his failed one-man terror operation.

The officials close to the probe tell The Associated Press they believe money for Faisal Shahzad's (FY'-sul shah-ZAHDS') plans was channeled through an underground money network known as "hawala."

But the officials say the people suspected of providing Shahzad money in the U.S. — including three people detained in Massachusetts and Maine — did not know what the money would be used for.

The officials spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the investigation is not yet completed.

Shahzad is charged with abandoning a homemade gasoline-and-propane bomb in an SUV in Times Square on May 1. The bomb didn't go off.
