Pastor who planned Quran burning lands in New York

September 10, 2010

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- An acquaintance of the pastor who once planned to burn copies of the Quran to mark the 9/11 anniversary says the Rev. Terry Jones headed to New York aboard a Friday night flight.

K.A. Paul, a Christian evangelist who runs a ministry in Houston, says he bought the ticket for Jones to fly out of Orlando and land around 10:15 p.m. in New York.

Jones landed in New York Friday night and declined to talk to reporters on his way to a cab.

Jones has said he wants to meet with the imam overseeing a proposed mosque and Islamic center to be built near ground zero.

Earlier Friday, Jones' son, Luke, said that the Quran-burning won't take place Saturday but couldn't say whether there would be a future event.
