An Afghan immigrant accused of a plot to build bombs for attacks on U.S. soil is due back in federal court in Denver.
Najibullah Zazi is scheduled to appear in court Friday for a hearing on whether he can be detained without bail.
The hearing was postponed Thursday after the 24-year-old Aurora resident was indicted in New York on charges of conspiracy to use weapons of mass destruction. The indictment says Zazi received explosives training from al-Qaida and bought large quantities of hydrogen peroxide and nail-polish remover at beauty supply stores to make bombs, possibly to detonate on New York City commuter trains.
Zazi was arrested last weekend and was charged along with his father and a New York City imam with lying to investigators. His father, Mohammed Zazi, has been released under court supervision pending an Oct. 9 hearing.
