    A Canadian fugitive has been charged in the foiled al-Qaida plot against New York City subways.

    Ferid Imam was named in an indictment unsealed Tuesday in federal court in Brooklyn.     

    The new court papers allege Imam was part of a conspiracy to attack the subways with suicide bombers in September 2008.      

    Colorado airport driver Najibullah Zazi and another man have pleaded guilty to terrorism charges. A third man is awaiting trial.     

    News reports in Canada say Imam vanished from Winnipeg in 2007 and is suspected of hiding out in northwestern Pakistan.
