NYC Car Bomb Suspect Faces Terror, Weapons Hearing

Monday, 21 Jun 2010 07:20 AM

A Pakistan-born U.S. citizen faces arraignment in New York on an indictment accusing him of using money and training from the Pakistani Taliban to plot a failed Times Square car bombing.

Faisal Shahzad (FY'-sul shah-ZAHD') is being called upon Monday to enter a plea to 10 terrorism and weapons charges. He's accused of a plot that fizzled when a gasoline-and-propane bomb failed to ignite in an SUV parked near a Broadway theater May 1.

The ex-budget analyst from Bridgeport, Conn., was arrested two days later. Authorities say he cooperated with investigators for two weeks before requesting a lawyer.

The indictment came last week in Manhattan federal court. The most serious counts against the 30-year-old Shahzad carry mandatory penalties of life in prison.

His dad's cousin calls his arrest "a conspiracy."
