Probe involving Colorado terror suspect widens

Hundreds of investigators have widened their probe of a potential terrorist bomb plot by questioning more residents of a New York City neighborhood raided last week.

A law enforcement official familiar with the probe says investigators are re-interviewing people already questioned in Queens.

The apartments were searched after a visit this month from Najibullah Zazi, of Colorado. Backpacks and cell phones were removed from one home.

The official wasn't authorized to speak publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.

Authorities are trying to determine the scope of a possible plot to detonate homemade bombs. Zazi, his father and a New York City imam have been charged with lying to the FBI.

The arrests and raids led to a flurry of nationwide terrorism warnings.
