A New York congressman says federal and local law enforcement authorities became aware of an al-Qaida propagandist killed last week in Yemen when he contacted other suspected terrorists on Long Island in recent years.
Rep. Peter King tells The Associated Press that 25-year-old Samir Khan was not the original target.
King says Khan "came on their radar" on Long Island between 2007 and 2009 when he was seen meeting with two suspects there.
King says those two are still being watched.
Newsday reported Friday that Khan had lived on Long Island for about a decade before moving to North Carolina in 2004.
Khan was killed last week in a U.S. airstrike in Yemen. He was with American-born cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, described as a leader of al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula.
