One of the al Qaeda members suspected of attending a terror planning meeting in Waziristan in March is now the subject of an FBI warning to border patrol authorities on the U.S. Mexican border. The FBI is looking for Adnan G. El Shukrijumah wanted on a Material Witness Warrant. Shukrijumah is also believed to have conducted surveillance at the New York Stock Exchange in preparation for a possible helicopter attack.
A Saudi terrorist suspect might be making his way to the U.S.-Mexico border amid groups of undocumented immigrants, officials with the FBI and the U.S. Embassy said.

Officials on both sides of the border have asked law enforcement officials, including Border Patrol agents and El Pasošs bridge inspectors, as well as the community at large to be on the lookout for Adnan G. El Shukrijumah, 29, a native of Saudi Arabia who may be using a Guyanese, Canadian or Trinidadian passport.

Place of birth: Saudi Arabia
Height: 5'3" to 5'7"
Weight: Unknown
Build: Medium to Heavy
Hair: Black
Eyes: Black
Complexion: Olive

Rewards for Justice

Shukrijumah is believed to be an asthmatic 29-year-old Arab-Guyanese bomb maker and pilot. Some officials quietly refer to him as the "new" Mohammed Atta, believing that he might play the same leading role in any future attack on the US as Atta did on 11 September. It was Atta who led and co-ordinated the terrorists’ activities once they were inside the US and officials fear that the Florida-raised Shukrijumah could fulfil a similar function.

Worse, they say, is that his fluent English and ability to pass as a Hispanic means that were he able to slip into the US under a false passport he might prove all but impossible to find, even though his name now appears on every available counter-terrorist watch list.

The hunt for Shukrijumah points out many weak areas of immigration policy from the ease of getting third country passports and the ability of operatives to move in and out of the U.S. seemingly at will.

Border security needs to be greatly enhanced if we are to avoid another large terror attack.

Where is Adnan el-Shukrijumah?
One of the most sought after Al-Qaeda members, Adnan el-Shukrijumah is still plotting harm against the US. He has been tied to numerous plots including, blowing up the Panama canal, dirty bomb threat, helicopter attacks etc, and is considered one of the new leadership of the terrorist group. He was at a terrorist summit in March of this year in Pakistan, and while many of those who attended, have been apprehended, el-Shukrijumah remains a fugitive.
