BREAKING NEWS: Times Square bomb suspect arrested trying to board flight

(CNN) – A U.S. citizen has been arrested in the Times Square bombing probe, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder announced early Tuesday.

Faisal Shahzad, 30, was arrested at JFK airport in New York late Monday as he prepared to board a flight to Dubai, United Arab Emirates, Holder said.

"It is clear the intent behind this terrorist act was to kill Americans," Holder said. "We will not rest until we bring everyone responsible to justice."
