The failed plot to bomb three New York City subways in September 2009 was hatched by two senior Al-Qaeda leaders in the tribal areas of Pakistan, prosecutors said as another accused pleaded guilty.

New details about the aborted terror mission of three would-be suicide attackers as Zarein Ahmedzay, a Queens taxi driver, admitted his role in the plot during a hearing in federal court in Brooklyn on Friday.

Ahmedzay joins Najibullah Zazi of Denver, who earlier pleaded guilty to participating in the alleged subway plot. The action leaves a single defendant, Adis Medunjanin, to stand trial on a five-count indictment. All three face up to life in prison.

According to federal prosecutors, the three men travelled to Pakistan in August 2008 and met with twoleaders, Saleh Al-Somali, head of international operations for Al Qaeda, and Rashid Rauf, described as a key Al-Qaeda operative.

The three Americans told the Al-Qaeda officials they wanted to fight in Afghanistan, but the leaders suggested they would be more useful to Al-Qaeda if they returned to New York to carry out suicide attacks, prosecutors said.
