WACO, Texas — A Muslim U.S. soldier accused of planning to bomb Fort Hood troops said he wasn't seeking vengeance but justice for people in Iraq and Afghanistan, according to a recording played at his federal trial Wednesday.

Army Pfc. Naser Jason Abdo was heard telling his mother during a recorded jail visit that "their suffering is my suffering."

Abdo, 22, is accused of planning to detonate a bomb inside a Killeen restaurant frequented by troops from the nearby Texas Army post and then shoot any survivors.
