Suspects in terror probe due in court

DENVER (AP) - Three men arrested in an ongoing terrorism probe are due in federal courtrooms today.

Emerging details of the investigation allege that Najibullah Zazi, who has admitted receiving weapons training from al-Qaida, played a direct role in an alleged terror plot. The information is contained in court documents.

Zazi, his father, and an imam in New York City were arrested late Saturday on charges of making a false statement to the government. Legal experts say more charges could be coming.

Zazi's defense team denied reports that Zazi considered a plea deal related to terror charges, and that he played a crucial role in anything.

The FBI says it found images of nine pages of handwritten notes on a laptop containing formulas and instructions for making bombs, detonators and a fuse.

Zazi says it was an unintentional download.
