French government spokesman confirmed that a terrorist wanted by the authorities was to take an Air France flight to US, wich has been cancelled on
Jean-Francois Cope informed the press the only thing he was allowed to say that the wanted passenger has not reported on the cancelled flight.
Earlier, the french minister of justice, Dominique Perben, stated that the autorities are searching for a man suspected of connections with Al-Quaeda,
thus confirming information released by ABC news network.
According to well informed sources to wich AFP is quoting, the man is an Afgan with a french passport. He bought tickets for 24.12 flight 68 from
Paris to LA.
US government then indoced french airlines to cancell flights because of a possibility of an Al-Quaeda activist getting on board.
The situation either will lead to catching the suspected terrorist or the case will never come to an end, at least the public won't be informed.
