Plot to detonate a Bomb in New York City

A man has been arrested over a plot to detonate a bomb in New York City.


The city's Mayor, Michael Bloomberg, said a 27-year-old man was facing three terror charges following his arrest.


Mr Bloomberg said Jose Pimentel is an "Al Qaeda sympathiser" who was
operating as a "lone wolf" without any links to foreign terrorist
groups.


It is claimed that Pimentel, a US citizen, had armed forces personnel, police and postal facilities among his intended targets.


New York's police commissioner Raymond Kelly said Pimentel is an
alleged follower of radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaqi, who was killed in a
raid by the US earlier this year.


"He talked about changing his name to Osama Hussein, to celebrate his
heroes, Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein," Commissioner Kelly said.


Mayor Bloomberg showed the news conference a video reconstruction of
the impact of the devices Pimentel is alleged to have been planning to
use.


The footage shows a car being destroyed by an explosion.
