      [Adis Medunjanin, 25, at Federal Court in Brooklyn earlier this week.]


      * Qaeda suspect trained to kill Yanks - feds

      * High school friend of Najibullah Zazi, Adis Madunjanin, received training at Al Qaeda camp

      * Getaway was giveaway for Queens terror suspects linked to Zazi

      A Queens man who allegedly trained at an Al Qaeda camp squealed on fellow terrorists, providing the feds with "very detailed information," prosecutors revealed Friday.

      After he was arrested two weeks ago, Adis Medunjanin blabbed to the FBI about the "terrorist-related activities of himself and others in the United States and Pakistan," Assistant Brooklyn U.S. Attorney James Loonam wrote in a letter.

      Medunjanin had been under surveillance since the fall arrest of his pal Najibullah Zazi, suspected of a subway bomb plot.

      Both men allegedly got military-type training at a terror camp in Pakistan in 2008.

      Whatever information Medunjanin coughed up could be crucial to the bomb plot probe, short-circuited when an NYPD informant tipped off Zazi.

      Defense lawyer Robert Gottlieb said Loonam's letter confirms his client was illegally questioned and the statement should be surpressed.
