An American Airlines mechanic accused of sabotaging the navigational system on a plane carrying 150 passengers at Miami International Airport may have ties to a terrorist group, the Miami Herald reports.

Abdul-Majeed Marouf Ahmed Alani, 60, was denied bond by a federal judge on Wednesday after prosecutors hinted he may have a Middle East terrorist organization. Alani claims he sabotaged the system because he was upset over union contract negotiations with the airline that had been held up. He claims he did not mean to harm anyone.
