Authorities have arrested a man they claim was plotting to detonate pipe bombs, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Sunday night.
The Manhattan man's intended targets were U.S. military personnel who had served in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as U.S. postal facilities and police stations.
The suspect allegedly learned how to make a pipe bomb after reading Inspire, the al Qaeda terrorist network's English-language online propaganda, recruiting and training magazine, according to the source. He is believed to have been acting alone.
The suspect had been under surveillance since May 2009 and "made even some of his like-minded friends nervous," New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly told reporters Sunday.
