LOS ANGELES (AFP) - US federal agents arrested a Pakistani-born man for allegedly falsely claiming that a terrorist was planning to blow up the British consulate in Toronto, officials said

The Federal Bureau of Investigation arrested Bukhtiar Abdul Latif Katchi, 34, in Los Angeles on charges of maliciously and falsely claiming that an Al-Qaeda operative was about to blow up the mission in Canada earlier this month.

"He called police in New Jersey and stated that an individual who was a member of Al-Qaeda was planning to blow up the British consulate in Toronto," FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller told AFP.

"An investigation identified the caller as Katchi, who had a longstanding dispute over property in Pakistan with the individual whom he implicated in the alleged plot," she said.
