Colorado man, father taken into custody in US terror probe

Federal authorities have arrested a 24-year-old airport shuttle driver and his father as part of terrorism probe in New York and Colorado, a spokeswoman for the younger man's defense team says.

Najibullah Zazi and his father were taken into custody at his suburban Denver apartment by FBI agents at 9:55 p.m. on Saturday. Zazi's spokeswoman, Wendy Aiello, says the two were then taken to FBI headquarters in Denver. Zazi's attorney, Art Folsom, was meeting the father and son at FBI headquarters.

It's not clear what charges the men may face. FBI spokeswoman Kathy Wright could not immediately be reached for comment.

Zazi had been scheduled to go to the Federal Building in Denver on Saturday for FBI questioning. But the meeting was so Zazi could meet with his attorney.
