One of the eleven Egyptians who took off after arriving in JFK was arrested in Minneapolis.
Eslam Ibrahim Mohamed El-Dessouki, 21, was arrested without incident about 11 a.m. (noon ET) in Minneapolis, Minnesota, according to a statement from FBI Special Agent Richard Kolko.
“El-Dessouki was taken into custody on an administrative immigration violation as an out-of-status student,” Kolko said.
El-Dessouki “was located through source information,” a federal law enforcement official said.
There was no indication what El-Dessouki was doing in Minnesota, but he was not visiting relatives, the official said.
Even though the FBI keeps repeating the line that these men pose no terrorism threat, how about they investigate the possibility anyway. I mean, it’s not like Minneapolis has never had a connection to al Qaeda before.
Update: Three men have been confirmed captured. Northeast Intelligence has the photos of the Egypt 11 the FBI are looking for:
