American Wanted for TA Terror Plot, Flees in Pakistan

Jude Kenan Mohammad, an American who was to go on trial in Pakistan for, among other things, planning a terror attack in Tel Aviv, disappeared on Saturday. He failed to appear for a hearing in the Pakistani city of Peshawar Saturday, and his whereabouts are unknown, officials said.

Mohammad was a member of an American Islamic terror cell based in North Carolina, along with seven other U.S. citizens. He was arrested when he entered Pakistan last year on charges of carrying weapons, but was released on bail.
