New York: A man charged in a failed
terror plot against the New York City subway system has
pleaded not guilty.

Adis Medunjanin entered the plea today in federal
court in Brooklyn.

The Bosnian immigrant had previously pleaded not
guilty to charges he sought to join two former high school
classmates from New York in what prosecutors called three
"coordinated suicide bombing attacks" on Manhattan subway
lines.

A revised indictment unsealed last month added new
charges alleging a high-ranking al Qaeda operative had
recruited Medunjanin, Najibullah Zazi and Zarein Ahmedzay in
2008 to receive training from the terror network in Pakistan.

Zazi and Ahmedzay have pleaded guilty and are
awaiting sentencing.
