DETROIT (AP) - Federal agents say a Saudi man was arrested at Detroit Metropolitan Airport after lying about why he was traveling with a pressure cooker.
Two pressure cookers were used in the Boston Marathon bombings last month.
A criminal complaint filed Monday says Hussain Al Kwawahir is accused of using a passport with missing pages and lying to Customs and Border Protection agents.
The complaint says Al Kwawahir arrived at the airport Saturday on a flight from Saudi Arabia via Amsterdam and told agents he was visiting his nephew in Toledo, Ohio.
The complaint says Al Kwawahir originally said he brought the pressure cooker because they aren't sold in America but later said his nephew bought one that broke.
A Monday detention hearing for Al Kwawahir in Detroit has been delayed.
