  • [01] Samaras-Bakoyannis Meeting

    Tuesday, 04 May 2010 11:35

    Main opposition New Democracy head Antonis Samaras met Tuesday with Dora Bakoyannis. The meeting took place upon the former Foreign Minister's request. She said she wanted to meet with Samaras to discuss the ways the country's liberal forces can contribute to the speedier exit from the crisis. She also underlined that the sacrifices the people of Greece are going through should not be wasted.

    "Past mentalities belong to the past and we should turn the page," commented Bakoyannis, who did not answer when asked whether she will vote for or against the government's new austerity measures.

    [02] Times Square Bomb Hit Seized

    Tuesday, 04 May 2010 09:35

    A Pakistani man believed to be the driver of an SUV used as a car bomb in a failed terror attack on Times Square was taken into custody late Monday by FBI agents and local police detectives while trying to leave the country, U.S. officials said.

    The suspect, Faisal Shahzad, was identified by customs agents at John F. Kennedy International Airport at about 11:45 p.m. Monday and was stopped before boarding an Emirates airlines flight to Dubai, according to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and other officials. Shahzad is a naturalized U.S. citizen and had recently returned from a five-month trip to Pakistan, where he had a wife, according to officials who spoke to The Associated Press early Tuesday on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the investigation.

    Shahzad was being held in New York and couldn't be contacted. He has a Shelton, Conn., address; a phone number listed there wasn't in service. Investigators were searching his home.

    The U.S. attorney's office for the Southern District in Manhattan will handle the case and said Shahzad would appear in court Tuesday on formal charges, but those charges were not made public.

    Holder said the U.S. "will not rest until we have brought everyone responsible to justice," suggesting additional suspects are being sought.

    Law enforcement officials say Shahzad bought the SUV, a 1993 Nissan Pathfinder, from a Connecticut man about three weeks ago and paid cash. The officials spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the case.

    Police said the bomb could have produced "a significant fireball" and sprayed shrapnel with enough force to kill pedestrians and knock out windows. The SUV was parked on a street lined with restaurants and Broadway theaters, including one showing "The Lion King," and full of people out on a Saturday night.
