The FBI’s terror task force arrested two New York men today in connection with the case against terror suspect Najibullah Zazi. Adis Medunjanin, 25, and Zarein Ahmedzay, 24, both went to Flushing High School with Zazi, and traveled to Pakistan with him in 2008. They’re expected to be arraigned later today in federal court.

The FBI visited Medunjanin last night as well, seizing his passport, but not arresting him. An hour later Medunjanin got into a car accident while being trailed by police and FBI agents. He then tried to flee the scene on foot, but was apprehended and taken to New York Hospital, where he was treated for minor injuries. Both men have had their homes searched before, and have been under surveillance. (More Najibullah Zazi stories.)
