NEW YORK - A Colorado man who's the target of a terrorism probe that led to several police raids in New York City denies he did anything wrong.

NEW YORK - A Colorado man who's the target of a terrorism probe that led to several police raids in New York City denies he did anything wrong.

A law enforcement official tells The Associated Press Tuesday that the FBI had put Najibullah Zazi under surveillance in connection with a suspected plot to make homemade bombs.

The official wasn't authorized to speak publicly and insisted on anonymity.

Zazi told The Associated Press that he had recently visited New York and was pulled over by police in a traffic stop while driving into the city. But he says he hasn't committed a crime.

New York officials say the FBI and New York City police raided three homes early Monday searching for explosives and possible links to al-Qaida after tailing Zazi. There were no arrests.
