New York (AP) - A New York City man says FBI investigators who raided several city apartments in an anti-terrorism probe questioned him about a childhood friend who lives in Denver who stayed with him last week.

Naiz Khan says he didn’t know of any connections his friend had to terrorism. He referred to his friend only as Najibullah.

Khan says Najibullah asked to stay at his house last Thursday, saying he was having trouble with his permit for a coffee truck he had operated in New York.

Khan says FBI agents came to his home early Monday and asked who Najibullah was and when he arrived.

Officials say the raids on three city apartments happened after a man under surveillance for possible terrorist links visited New York City and left the area.

Colorado Governor Bill Ritter's office just issued this statement on the ongoing anti-terrorism investigation. “Over the past several days, Gov. Ritter has been briefed regularly and as necessary. Based on what we know, there’s no reason to believe there is any imminent threat in Colorado. Colorado law enforcement is part of a Joint Terrorism Task Force, with federal, state and local partners, and these agencies are routinely briefed and consulted and provide assistance as needed.
