Shirley man demands apology for FBI's terror raid

A Shirley man questioned Thursday by FBI agents investigating the Times Square bomb plot is demanding an apology or says that he will sue.

Mohammad Iqbal says he was the victim of racial profiling. He says FBI agents terrified him and his family when they raided his home Thursday. Iqbal says they seized cell phones and computers.

?The only reason [is] because my name is Mohammad and I'm from Pakistan,? Iqbal says.

Authorities conducted several raids yesterday in the Northeast as part of their investigation into how the failed attack was funded.

The Shirley man says authorities asked him about his friend, Muhammad Younis, whose Centereach home was also raided yesterday, but he says he doesn?t know why.
