Colorado (US), Sep.17 (ANI): Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agents scoured the Colorado home of an Afghan national - Najibullah Zazi - who has traveled to Pakistan and is linked to an Al Qaeda terror cell. There is a strong suspicion that he attended a terror training camp there.

Twenty-five-year-old Zazi is also said to have been involved in a plot to attack the New York City subway systems.

The search with bomb-sniffing dogs took place on Wednesday in Aurora, Colorado, sources told the Daily News.

"Zazi has certainly had some bad connections to people overseas," said a source familiar with the ongoing case.

FBI agents and deputies from the Arapahoe County sheriff's office stood outside his apartment building as authorities rooted around inside.

The suspect was spotted in a Queens mosque last week and also was seen in lower Manhattan, the sources said.

Zazi managed to lose his FBI tail after he was warned about the federal attention, the sources said.

Despite intense around-the-clock scrutiny on Zazi and four other reputed cell members, authorities had yet to make an arrest in the case. (ANI)
