PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad – A Guyanese suspect in an alleged plot to bomb a fuel pipeline feeding New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport surrendered to police Tuesday in
Trinidad, a police official said.
Abdel Nur turned himself in at a police station outside the Trinidadian capital
of Port-of-Spain, police spokeswoman Wendy Campbell told The Associated Press.
He is the fourth man arrested the alleged plot, including a former opposition member of Guyana’s parliament and a former airport air cargo employee who was arrested in
Trinidadian Police Commissioner Trevor Paul warned Monday that Nur should be
considered armed and dangerous and he appealed to the public for help in finding him.
“I am confident that the pressure brought to bear by the Trinidadian police
authorities contributed to his surrender,” said Mark Mershon, the head of the FBI in New
York. “We are very grateful for their tremendous cooperation in this investigation.”
