CAIRO (AP) — The Al Arabiya TV station says it has video of the failed Times Square car bomb suspect meeting with Pakistani Taliban leaders along the Afghan border.

Al Arabiya broadcast excerpts showing Faisal Shahzad saying he planned a “revenge attack” against the U.S. that he hoped would touch the hearts of Muslims.

Shahzad appears in the clips sitting on the ground in a black turban and military fatigues, with a gun next to him. He reads from the Koran.

The station also says Shahzad appears in part of the 40-minute video that it did not broadcast with a prominent Pakistan Taliban leader in the tribal regions along the Afghan border.

In June, Shahzad pleaded guilty to carrying out the failed May 1 bombing in Times Square.
