WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Authorities say a Kansas man accused of planning to detonate a car bomb at the Wichita airport has been arrested.
U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said 58-year-old Terry Lee Loewen was arrested Friday morning at Mid-Continent regional airport.
Grissom said the man planned to drive a car that he believed was full of explosives into a terminal at the airport.
Loewen was charged with one count each of attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction, attempting to damage property and attempting to provide support to the terrorist group al-Qaida.
Investigators say Loewen is an avionics technician who lives in Wichita and works at the airport. He had been under investigation for about six months after he made statements about wanting to commit "violent jihad" against the U.S.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - Missouri State University officials are trying to decide how, or if, to monitor fake guns used on campus during a popular Zombie game.
The "Humans vs. Zombies" game drew 500 students during a week in October. Participants try to tag other people, who then become zombies. The humans can defend themselves against the zombies by stunning them with Nerf guns or a balled-up sock.
The Springfield News-Leader reports that during October's game, a professor called 911 and put a classroom on lockdown after thinking he saw a gun. And the university's safety and transportation department got several calls on its non-emergency number while the game was being played.
Department director Don Clark says banning the Nerf guns is a possibility but he is not sure that's the right solution.
