From Fox 5:
Federal authorities have identified a person of interest in the investigation into the Times Square bomb plot, described as a naturalized American citizen who recently returned from Pakistan, Fox News confirmed Monday.
Investigators also reportedly have been looking through phone records of possible suspects and found at least one call made from the U.S. to overseas that piqued their interest.
At the same time, the Washington Post reported an FBI-led terrorism task force has now taken over the investigation, citing a senior law enforcement source.
The paper said the federal task force was taking charge “because of indications it was connected to international terrorism,” according to the source.
