NYC Terror Suspect Zazi Was Surrounded by Radical Influences

Saturday, October 03, 2009

Sept. 25: Najibullah Zazi, center, is escorted off an NYPD helicopter by U.S Marshals after being extradited from Denver, Colo.

NEW YORK —  If he chose to listen, Najibullah Zazi could hear the calls for violence all around him.

The Afghan immigrant accused of plotting a terror attack on New York City spent his earliest years in his wartorn homeland, a center of strife and fighting against a Soviet invasion and, after the occupiers left, clashing warlords.

When Zazi was a teenager, his family shared a Queens apartment building and worshipped with an imam linked to a former Afghan warlord later identified by the U.S. as a global terrorist.

And as a young man, Zazi traveled to a region of Pakistan known for training terrorists and visited camps where Al Qaeda teaches how to kill with horrific bombs made from household ingredients like hair dye and flour.
