The US Justice Department HAS filed charges against five suspects in connection with a plot to blow up New York City's subway system. One of the suspects is allegedly a top al-Qaida leader.

Federal prosecutors charge that between September and December 2008, the suspects planned to conduct suicide bombings in the subway system using improvised explosive devices.

Two of the suspects have pleaded guilty to charges of planning to detonate homemade bombs on the subway.

US Attorney General Eric Holder called the plot "one of the most dangerous since September 11th." Another suspect is Adnan El Shukrijumah, one of the most-wanted terrorists by the US.

He is one of the top candidates to be al-Qaida's next head of external operations in charge of planning attacks worldwide.

He remains at large with a 5-million-U.S.-dollar bounty out for his arrest.
