FBI hunting for alleged al-Qaida terorrist

The FBI Thursday issued an urgent bulletin to media and law enforcement in regard to a possible al-Qaida operative who may be at large in the United States. Adnan el-Shukrijumah — believed to be a 27-year-old Saudi citizen — is wanted for questioning in regard to a possible domestic terrorist plot. El-Shukrijumah is thought to have a Guyana passport and to have been trained as a pilot. The possibility that he is in the United States and could pose a threat was developed from questioning key al-Qaida official Khalid Mohammed, who was arrested in Pakistan earlier this month. Using the alias Ja’far al-Tayar and similar names, el-Shukrijumah is described as standing between 5’3″ and 5’5″ and weighing at least 130 pounds. There has been some confusion on the part of intelligence and law enforcement sources about the identity of el-Shukrijumah, who might also be wanted by the FBI under the name Mohammed Sher Mohammed Khan. Khan fits the same physical description as el-Shukrijumah, although the FBI alert — dated Feb. 7 — has him as being 36 years old and born in Pakistan. Khan is also a pilot and was last seen in Miami.
