Afghan admits NYC bomb plot

NEW YORK – AN AFGHAN immigrant accused of plotting a bomb attack on New York City pleaded guilty to three counts on Monday, telling the judge he planned to sacrifice himself in a ‘martyrdom operation’ by attacking the subway system.

Najibullah Zazi, 25, also admitted in Brooklyn federal court that he had received bomb-making and weapons training from Al-Qaeda in Pakistan’s Waziristan region, which borders Afghanistan.
