A terror suspect arrested by New York authorities allegedly scouted locations for possible attacks in various cities, including Boston, where he looked at Fenway Park, the Prudential Center, and Quincy Market, federal prosecutors said Thursday. In a statement, the office of Geoffrey S. Berman, US attorney for New York’s southern district identified the suspect as Alexi Saab, 42, a naturalized US citizen charged Thursday with “offenses related to his support for Hizballah and separate marriage-fraud offenses.” Hizballah is an alternate spelling of Hezbollah. That support allegedly included taking photographs in Boston of the three iconic landmarks, which were among targets “of interest to Hizballah,” said a complaint filed in the case. Other targets were photographed in New York and Washington, D.C. It wasn’t immediately clear when Saab would appear in court. Berman’s office said in a statement that Saab “joined Hizballah in … [Read more...] about N.Y. terror suspect scouted 3 locations in Boston
