Two on 'No-Fly' List Arrested at Airport

After their names were flagged on an anti-terrorist “no-fly” list, two Pakistani men arrested at the airport Saturday are being held on immigration charges as federal authorities try to determine what they were doing in the United States. One suspect had paid cash for a one-way ticket to New York before an airline employee found his name on the list, according to an airport police report and federal officials. As the employee called authorities, the man walked away, leaving his ticket on the counter, according to the police report. The man, 36, carried a driver’s license from the Canadian province of British Columbia, according to the report. The name of the second man, who carried a New York driver’s license that gave his age as 29, was also matched to the no-fly list after he paid cash for his ticket. The arrests, which occurred Saturday night at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, were first reported in today’s Seattle Times. Full Story
