Reliable
  • Speaks Arabic and German.
  • He was detained in Frankfurt, Germany, in 1987, trying to smuggle liquid explosives into the country. He served a 19-year term and was released in 2005, a move prompting severe criticism from the United States, where he remains wanted for his role in the 1985 hijacking of TWA 847, during which one American was killed.1,2
