WORCESTER, Mass. - A lawyer for a Massachusetts man accused of plotting to fly explosives-packed remote-controlled model planes into the Pentagon and U.S. Capitol is expected to ask that his bail hearing be delayed.
The hearing for Rezwan Ferdaus was scheduled Monday afternoon in U.S. District Court in Worcester.
Federal defender Catherine Byrne said she plans to ask that the hearing be postponed. Prosecutors are seeking to have the 26-year-old man held without bail as he awaits trial on a string of charges.
They include attempting to damage and destroy national defense premises and attempting to provide materiel support to terrorists.
Ferdaus was arrested Wednesday after undercover federal agents delivered materials he allegedly requested, including grenades, six machine guns and what he believed was 25 pounds of C-4 explosives.
