    A Massachusetts man accused of plotting to attack the Pentagon and U.S. Capitol building with model planes filled with C-4 explosives will plead guilty to two terror charges, say prosecutors, and serve a 17-year federal sentence. According to court documents filed by prosecutors and attorneys for Rezwan Ferdaus, a Northeastern University physics graduate and U.S. citizen, Ferdaus has agreed to plead guilty to attempting to provide material support to terrorists and attempting to damage and destroy federal buildings by means of an explosive. Ferdaus, 27, was arrested at the culmination of a long-term sting operation by undercover FBI agents posing...

    NEW YORK (AP) - A law enforcement official says a Colorado air shuttle driver accused of a homemade-bomb plot against New York City flushed the explosive materials down the toilet. Law enforcement officials tell The Associated Press that Najibullah Zazi (nah-jee-BOO'-lah ZAH'-zee) had told federal prosecutors he was armed with bomb-making materials when he drove to New York City last September. But one official says that Zazi flushed the explosives down the toilet in New York after becoming concerned about a traffic stop.

    Spain's anti-terrorism court has convicted 11 men of South Asian origin, mostly Pakistanis, in connection with a plot to stage suicide attacks in the Barcelona metro last year. The men have received jail terms of between eight and 14 years, a copy of the ruling indicates. They intended to "carry out a violent attack using explosives against the Barcelona metro, which could have caused many casualties", the court said on Monday. "The indiscriminate aim is evidence of the terrorist nature of the attacks." Shaib Iqbal and Qadeer Malik, both born in Pakistan, received the stiffest terms of 14 years and...

    You gotta’ love the New York Times and its hyper-politically correct sensitivities about revealing the ethnic or religious backgrounds of criminal suspects. Thus we have today’s front-pager: “4 Accused of Bombing Plot at Bronx Synagogues.” Who were these four, I wondered? Could they be Chrysler shareholders upset that they are getting stiffed in bailout proceedings? ACLU lawyers mad that President Obama has refused to release interrogation photos? Possibly Greenwich hedge-fund managers furious about plans to regulate their industries? Or maybe just random nuts who like to set off bombs for the fun of it? Nope. It turns out–get ready for...

    This month, the FBI announced it had interrupted a plot to attack one of America's busiest airports - JFK International in New York. The target was the airport's complex of airline fuel storage tanks and the pipelines that feed them. At a news conference, Roslynn Mauskopf, the United States attorney in Brooklyn, said, "Had the plot been carried out, it could have resulted in unfathomable damage, deaths and destruction." She added that "The devastation that would be caused had this plot succeeded is just unthinkable." Some of the media later dismissed this threat as ill conceived and technically beyond the...

    NEW YORK -- Six men from New Jersey have been arrested in an alleged terror plot against soldiers at Fort Dix, according investigators.

Fort Dix was just one of several military and security locations allegedly scouted by this group, authorities said. Investigators told Newschannel 4's Jonathan Dienst that these arrests are the result of a tip to the FBI and use of an informant to track the suspects. Authorities were alerted in January 2006 after...

    Thursday, Dec. 21, 2006 11:42 a.m. EST Europe on High Terror Alert The threat of a terrorist attack in Europe by Islamic radicals has reached its highest level since the July 2005 transit bombings in London, counterterrorism officials say. European authorities have disrupted dozens of terrorist attempts since the bombings and have far more suspected radicals under surveillance than at any point since 9/11, The Washington Post reports. Last week, British Home Secretary John Reid disclosed that an attempted terrorist attack in the U.K. was "highly likely” during the Christmas holiday season. Also last week, Spanish authorities broke up a...

    British Muslims volunteering to fight against coalition forces in Iraq and Afghanistan are being sent back to Britain to become al-Qaeda "sleeper" agents, The Sunday Telegraph has learned. MI5 agents believe that young Asian men, who have been trained to take part in the so-called "global jihad" in al-Qaeda camps in Pakistan and Afghanistan, are now regarded as too valuable an asset to be used fighting British and American troops. MI5 and MI6 are working on the assumption that they are being ordered to return to their communities in Britain with instructions to establish secret, autonomous cells and to conduct...
