Holland Tunnel Bomb Plot Uncovered

The FBI has uncovered an intricate terror plot to blow up New York City's Holland tunnel and flood lower Manhattan.

The report, according to the New York Daily News, says terrorists wanted to blow up the tunnel with the hope of flooding lower Manhattan's financial district.. The same area as the World Trade Center.

One man has been arrested in Beirut and counterterrorism forces are hunting suspects around the world.

The plotters allegedly were promised aid by Abu Musab al Zarqawi, the Al Qaeda

terrorist killed by U.S. forces in Iraq last month.

Sources say the terrorists planned to hit other tunnels and subways.
