Updated on : Tuesday, May 04, 2010

NEW YORK: A law enforcement official says the man accused of driving a bomb-laden vehicle into Times Square was arrested onboard a flight set to leave a New York airport for Dubai.

The official familiar with the investigation tells a foreign news agency that Faisal Shahzad was taken into custody aboard the flight at Kennedy International Airport.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the investigation.

The official says investigators still don't have evidence that Shahzad is connected to the Pakistani Taliban or any foreign terror groups.

The official says, “He's claimed to have acted alone, but these are things that have to be investigated."
