FBI agents have searched a home of a man near Denver, Colorado, as part of a major anti-terrorism investigation.

The agents entered the home of Najibullah Zazi, aged 24, in Aurora with a search warrant. The FBI declined to give any further details.

The search comes amid media reports that the case is focused on al-Qaeda linked suspects with bomb-making plans.

It comes two days after several homes were raided in New York in relation to a counter-terrorism investigation.

Federal agents helped by New York police executed search warrants on residences in the borough of Queens. No arrests were announced.

The raids were reportedly made after Mr Zazi visited New York last weekend.

Mr Zazi, an airport-shuttle driver, denies any involvement with terrorism.
