AP source: NYC terrorism suspect plans plea deal

NEW YORK (AP) - A law enforcement official says a Colorado air shuttle driver accused of a homemade-bomb plot against New York City has agreed to enter a guilty plea.

The official tells The Associated Press that Najibullah Zazi reached the plea deal after cooperating with authorities over the past few weeks. The official wasn't authorized to speak publicly about the plea deal and spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity.

The official didn't know what charge Zazi planned to plead to on Monday. Authorities say he received al-Qaida training in Pakistan.

Three other law enforcement officials tell the AP that Zazi had volunteered information to federal prosecutors about an alleged plot to attack New York City with homemade bombs.
