(Edited from AP, Washington) Federal prosecutors say the failed plot to set off bombs in the New York subway last year was part of a larger al-Qaida conspiracy that also targeted England.

In a terrorism indictment unsealed Wednesday, prosecutors added several al-Qaida figures to the case, including Adnan Shukrijumah, an FBI most-wanted terrorist.

Adnan Shukrijumah, who has eluded the FBI for years and remains at large, was expected to be named in an indictment in Brooklyn federal court, the officials said.

They did not say what charges Shukrijumah would face. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly discuss the case.

Attorney General Eric Holder has called the thwarted New York plot one of the most dangerous since 9/11.

Two of the men indicted Wednesday, Abid Naseer and Tariq Ur Rehman, were linked to a companion plot in London.
