N.M. TERRORIST PLOT: Security foiled plans, FBI says

July 30, 2004
A possible attack against New Mexico or California was planned for May, but intelligence suggests it was thwarted by increased security in both states, said FBI Special Agent William Elwell.

Elwell, who is based in Albuquerque, said Thursday that he could not go into details. But he said the FBI received the information last week.

"We had obtained information that possible al-Qaida elements, which exist in California and possibly New Mexico, were planning a possible terrorist attack. It possibly was to have occurred in May in one of those states," Elwell said.

"But the attack was called off due to increased security. The attack was unspecific in its scope or location." FR Reprint.
