Zazi's Associates Make First Court Appearance

Thursday, February 25, 2010

Two associates of foiled New York City subway bomb plotter Najibullah Zazi are scheduled to make their first court appearances since he pleaded guilty.

Zarein Ahmedzay and Adis Medunjanin went to high school with Zazi in Queens and are accused of traveling with him to Pakistan in 2008.

Zazi admitted Monday that he got terrorism training during the trip. The former Colorado airport shuttle driver says he returned to the United States and planned to detonate bombs around the anniversary of the September 11 attacks.

Medunjanin has pleaded not guilty to charges he conspired to kill U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan. Ahmedzay has denied lying to the FBI about places he visited during the trip.
