In a dramatic scene that could have been pulled from TV's "24," federal agents arrested 30-year-old Pakistani-born Faisal Shahzad on the tarmac of New York's Kennedy Airport for an alleged connection with Saturday's attempted Times Square car bombing.
Though Shahzad is now in federal custody and has admitted to planning and placing the car bomb, it remains to be seen how deep his connection to international terror groups runs. BBC reporter, Aleem Maqbool has details on Pakistan's response to the arrest. And we get the latest developments in this story from Mark Mazzetti, national security correspondent for our partner The New York Times.
