NEW YORK (AP) — A man accused of plotting to bomb a New York City synagogue says he is innocent, and blames his legal troubles on being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Terror suspect Mohamed Mamdouh told the New York Daily News in a jailhouse interview published Saturday that he had "nothing to do" with the reputed bombing plot by his co-defendant, Ahmed Ferhani.

He told the newspaper he had no problems with Jews, or anyone else, and just had the bad luck of being around when an undercover police officer overheard Ferhani talking about blowing up buildings.

Mamdouh says Ferhani has "anger issues."

Ferhani's lawyer says he's innocent.

The pair were arrested Wednesday after Ferhani was caught in a police sting trying to buy guns and a hand grenade.
