Mohammad Wali Zazi, the Colorado man whose son is accused of plotting what authorities say would have been the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil since 9/11, will be required to wear an electronic monitoring bracelet and be subjected to random, unannounced visits by minders. That's according to The New York Times, which reports that the elder Zazi, accused of obstructing the federal terror probe that netted his son and several other suspects, is expected to make bail in New York after being held behind bars since February 1. Zazi, 55, will pay a $50,000 bond, secured by $20,000 cash, prosecutors say, and will be permitted to leave his home in Aurora for work, to meet his lawyer, go to court, receive medical treatment, or to attend religious services, notes 9News and the Times.
