Canadian Wanted by FBI for Attempted Bombing


A Lebanese-born Canadian man is accused of using a fake passport in an attempt to enter Israel and conduct a bombing on behalf of Hizbullah, an indictment unsealed in a U.S. federal court has revealed.

The Associated Press reported that 44-year-old Faouzi Ayoub faces one count of passport fraud, according to the August 2009 indictment that was only unsealed in U.S. District Court in the past week.

The FBI could not say where Ayoub, who is on the FBI’s most wanted list of terror suspects, is believed to be now, but a spokeswoman said he is considered armed and dangerous and that anyone with information about him should contact their local FBI office, or nearest U.S. embassy or consulate.
