Afghan taxi driver plead guilty of conspiring in US bomb plot

A New York City taxi driver pleaded guilty on Friday of plotting to bomb New York's subways.

Zarein Ahmedzay is the second Afghan man to plead guilty to the plot. He faces life in prison.

Ahmedzay pleaded guilty in federal court in Brooklyn to conspiring to use weapons of mass destruction, conspiring to commit murder in a foreign country and providing material support to al Qaeda network.

Ahmedzay is a former classmate of Najibullah Zazi, who admitted earlier this year that he had received weapons and training from al Qaeda and plotted a suicide bomb attack on the city's subways during rush hour.
