UPDATE – FBI Arrests Two In Connection With ‘Zazi’ Terror Plot

NYC – The following is an update on the incident reported by YWN on Thursday night: Two men in Queens are now under arrest on federal charges in connection with the ongoing investigation of the Najibullah Zazi terror plot.

25-year-old Adis Medunjanin was arrested after crashing his car near the Whitestone Bridge on Thursday.

Medunjanin, who was interviewed twice in the immediate aftermath of the bomb plot, left his Flushing home driving erratically following the execution of a warrant there, investigators said.

Medunjanin’s attorney, Robert Gottlieb, said investigators were looking to seize his passport.

Law enforcement sources said a surveillance team was following Medunjanin, who they said rear ended another vehicle at the Whitestone Expressway and then attempted to flee the scene.

Medunjanin was charged with leaving the scene of an accident. He was treated for injuries sustained in the accident at New York Hospital Queens, police said.

The other man is a 24-year-old taxi driver– and friends with the other two men.

Zazi was arrested last September on charges of plotting to carry out acts of terrorism against the United States.
