LUBBOCK (AP) – A Texas student from Saudi Arabia accused of trying to build a bomb with chemicals and equipment ordered online has waived his right to a detention hearing.

Defense attorney Rod Hobson filed the document Monday that waives 20-year-old Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari’s scheduled Friday detention hearing.

The document states Aldawsari can later request a pretrial detention hearing.

Aldawsari was arrested Feb. 28 on a charge of attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction. Court records show federal agents had traced his online purchases, found extremist posts he’d made on the Internet and secretly searched his apartment, computer and e-mail accounts.

The records show one of his alleged targets was the Dallas home of former President George W. Bush.
