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.
Hussain Al Kwawahir was to be arraigned Monday in federal court in Detroit. He's accused of using a passport with missing pages and lying to Customs and Border Protection agents.
A criminal complaint says Kwawahir arrived at the airport Saturday on a flight from Saudi Arabia via Amsterdam. The complaint says Al Kwawahir told agents he was visiting his nephew in Toledo, Ohio. The complaint states that the nephew is purportedly a student at the University of Toledo.
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.
