Massachusetts Man Had Times Square Bomber’s Phone Number

BOSTON (AP) – A government attorney says a Pakistani man arrested in Massachusetts during the investigation into the failed Times Square bomb plot had the primary suspect's phone number.

Richard Neville, deputy chief counsel for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, told a judge in Boston that Aftab Khan had in his belongings an envelope with Faisal Shahzad's first name on it. He says the envelope also had a phone number that investigators have concluded is Shahzad's.

Neville says Khan also had a cell phone that contained in its memory Shahzad's phone number and first name.

Neville says the items were found in Khan's apartment in Watertown, Mass. He revealed the information Thursday as he tried to persuade the judge to keep Khan in the United States.
