Fla. man is accused of terror plot

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — A Pakistani-born man wanted to avenge the deaths from US drone attacks in Afghanistan by blowing up a New York City landmark but lacked the money and materials to carry out the plan, a federal prosecutor said Tuesday.

Assistant US Attorney Karen Gilbert said at a bail hearing that Raees Alam Qazi, 20, researched bomb-making techniques on Internet sites affiliated with Al Qaeda, including one using Christmas tree lights, and the FBI recorded phone calls and conversations linking Qazi to a purported ‘‘lone wolf’’ plot.
