NEW YORK (AP) -- A relative of a would-be New York City subway bomber has been sentenced to three years of probation.
The uncle of Najibullah Zazi (nah-jee-BOO'-lah ZAH'-zee) had admitted he failed to report that he discovered homemade bomb materials stashed in his Colorado home.
Zazi has pleaded guilty to terrorism charges alleging he traveled with two childhood friends to Pakistan to receive terror training from al-Qaida. He returned from Pakistan to uncle Naqib Jaji's home to cook up homemade bombs in a hotel room in suburban Denver before driving to New York in September 2009 for what he described as a "martyrdom operation."
Zazi abandoned the operation after discovering authorities were tailing him. He's scheduled to be sentenced in September. His uncle was sentenced Friday.
