[quote:snark:MV8xMDMzMzIxXzE2MzUwNzA4X0ZGMzFCMkRB] AP sources: Diplomat in bomb scare was en route to meet jailed terrorist in Colorado By MATTHEW LEE and P. SOLOMON BANDA , Associated Press Last update: April 8, 2010 - 2:25 PM WASHINGTON - A Qatari diplomat who caused a bomb scare after sneaking a smoke in an airplane bathroom was traveling for a consular visit to see an imprisoned al-Qaida agent. A State Department official and another person close to the matter say Mohammed Al-Madadi was going to meet Ali Al-Marri for an official visit. Consular officials frequently visit foreigners held in the United States to make sure they are being treated well. The two sources spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter. Officials say the diplomat will be sent home or transferred to another country for touching off the bomb scare. http://www.startribune.com/nation/90204137.html [/quote]

Federal air marshals subdued a man who authorities say attempted to "light his shoes on fire" on a United flight from Washington Reagan to Denver Wednesday night, federal law enforcement officials told ABC News.
Authorities say an explosive team is on the way to the airport, and that while the presence of explosives has not yet been confirmed, they believe it was an attempted "shoe bomb."
The suspect was identified by authorities as a diplomat in the Qatar embassy in Washington, Mohammed al Modadi. The FBI said the man had full diplomat immunity as the 3rd secretary and vice-consul.
Authoritiess said two jet fighters were scrambled from Buckley Air Force Base to accompany United flight 663, a Boeing 757, as it flew the final 40 miles to Denver where it landed safely.
Authorities said the man, identified as from Qatar, was restrained by the air marshals who were on the flight.
The United jet was reportedly being directed to a remote location at the Denver airport.
A spokesman for the FBI in Denver declined to comment.
