Saudi man traveling with pressure cooker due in Detroit court; nephew says it was for food

A Saudi man arrested at Detroit Metropolitan Airport after federal agents said he lied about why he was traveling with a pressure cooker is due in court.

Hussain Al Khawahir is scheduled to appear Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Detroit for a hearing to determine whether he will be released on bond or detained.

Al Khawahir was arrested Saturday on allegations of lying to agents and using a passport with a missing page. His nephew, Nasser Almarzooq, told The Associated Press Monday the case was a misunderstanding about the device he wanted for cooking.

Almarzooq says his uncle was coming to visit him for a couple weeks. Almarzooq is a student in University of Toledo in Ohio.

Two pressure cookers were used in the Boston Marathon bombings last month.
