FBI Warns that Terrorists May Use Copters

The FBI warns that al Qaeda may plan to use tourist helicopters or limousines in future attacks against the United States. The warning is apparently based on intelligence recently found on a laptop computer in Pakistan, some of which appears to be several years old. Also Monday, terror suspect Qari Saifullah Akhtar was detained in the United Arab Emirates. NPR's Mary Louise Kelly reports.
