The fourth man charged in a terrorist plot to blow up fuel tanks at Kennedy International Airport surrendered yesterday, telling reporters the case was a setup.
An old friend drove Abdel Nur to a Trinidad police station after warning him he was on the front pages of newspapers across the world, the New York Daily News reports.
Michael (Abdullah) Campbell said he hadn’t seen Nur in 30 years when he turned up at his hillside compound. A nerve-racking trip to the police station followed.
"I was hoping the police don't see me carrying him in my car," Campbell told the Post. "I could be killed. My heart was beating fast."
Nur spoke to reporters in the Trinidad capital of Port-of-Spain. "It's a conspiracy, there was a setup," he said.
