September 14, 2009 - San Francisco, CA - - A terror plot was apparently busted today in Queens, just days after the eighth anniversary of 911.

The New York Times Cityroom blog, quoting unnamed sources, is reporting that there is a link between the alleged terror cell and al-Qaeda. [see,]

Witnesses to the raids are claiming they saw FBI special agents approaching the apartment heavily armed, some with sub-machine guns.

So far, at least two separate apartments have been searched, one of which was occupied by five Afghani men, one of whom was questioned by authorities but not held.

Justice Dept. lawyers obtained an emergency search warrant to authorize the action last night.
