Three Arrested in "Chilling" Plot to Attack Kennedy Airport

Authorities say they've disrupted a terror plot that could have caused "unthinkable" devastation. They say the aim was to set off explosives in a fuel line that feeds New York's Kennedy airport and runs through residential neighborhoods. U.S. Attorney Roslynn Mauskopf calls it "one of the most chilling plots imaginable."

Authorities say three people have been arrested, including a U.S. citizen born in Guyana who used to work at JFK. He's expected to be  arraigned today in Brooklyn.

Two other men are in custody in Trinidad, including a former  member of Guyana's parliament. A fourth man is being sought in Trinidad.

An indictment says all four have been charged with conspiring to attack the airport by blowing up major fuel supply tanks and the pipeline.
