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.
