The Rev. Terry Jones, the Florida pastor who has garnered worldwide attention for his plan earlier this week to burn Qurans on September 11, arrived in New York City late Friday night, according to footage provided by CNN affiliate WABC.
"I don't have anything to say right now," he told a group of reporters who followed him out of LaGuardia Airport and to a taxi cab.
K.A. Paul, an evangelist in contact with Jones, has said that there will be no burning of the book Saturday evening, as had been originally planned.
Jones has said he was scheduled to travel to New York City on Friday night for a still-unscheduled meeting with the imam in charge of the New York Islamic center planned near ground zero.
The planned meeting, Jones had said, helped persuade him to halt the planned burning.
