Suicide Bomber Planned NYC Strike

A 28-year-old jihadist made plans to set off a suicide bomb in the New York City subway, an assistant attorney said in court Monday. Bosnian-born Adis Medunjanin stands trial alone in Brooklyn federal court for what prosecutors have said was an al Qaeda–inspired scheme in 2009. “These three men agreed to return to the U.S. to conduct suicide bombings against the U.S. for al Qaeda” after a trip to Pakistan, said attorney James Loonam. “Al Qaeda wanted to show it could still hit the U.S. on American soil.”
