    A man admitted Monday that he falsely told federal agents his relatives were linked to Osama Bin Laden's terrorist network and were plotting to blow up the Sears Tower and other landmarks.

    Abdul Rauf Noormohamed pleaded guilty in federal court to one count of making false statements to federal agents. He faces up to five years in prison.

    A phone message left with Noormohamed's attorney Monday was not returned.

    Authorities say Noormohamed made 10 phone calls to state and federal officials between late 2003 and early 2004, falsely saying that "terrorists" were planning to detonate bombs at such landmarks as the Sears Tower, Soldier Field, City Hall and O'Hare International Airport.

    The caller never gave his name, but the final call was taped by the FBI, and agents said people accused by the caller recognized the voice as Noormohamed's.

    FBI agents said he named five relatives and two others as members of bin Laden's al-Qaida network and the Islamic Jihad terrorist organization because he had been quarreling with them. Noormohamed was arrested in January 2004 at O'Hare while preparing to board a plane for Egypt.
