Terrorism Plot

NEW YORK (AP) -- The accused mastermind of a plot to blow up a fuel pipeline that feeds J-F-K Airport is in New York, and will face a bail hearing on Wednesday.

But two other suspects are still in Trinidad, off the coast of Venezuela, and will most likely stay there through much of the summer. The pair made their initial court appearance today on one count each of conspiracy to commit a terrorist act against the government of the United States. The two men plan to fight extradition to the U-S, during a hearing scheduled for August second.

An informant helped authorities crack open the plot, which they say never got beyond snapping pictures and discussions.

Authorities are searching for a fourth man.
