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


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

Paul provided The Associated Press with a copy of the itinerary and flight
confirmation number.


Paul says Jones was able to sneak out of his Gainesville church
without the media noticing.


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


Luke Jones declined to comment on his father's travel plans.
