Mollie Halpern: The FBI needs your tips to track down the newest fugitive added to its Most Wanted Terrorists list—Liban Haji Mohamed. A reward of up to $50,000 is available for information leading to Mohamed’s arrest and conviction.
Carl Ghattas: Liban is one of those individuals that has caused us serious concern.
Halpern: Mohamed is a Somali-born naturalized U.S. citizen who worked as a taxicab driver in the Northern Virginia suburbs of Washington, D.C. Special Agent in Charge of the Counterterrorism Division at the FBI’s Washington Field Office Carl Ghattas says Mohamed is wanted for providing material support to al Shabaab and al Qaeda, both of which are designated terrorist organizations.
Ghattas: Not only did he chose to go to Somalia and fight with al Shabaab, he took a prominent role in trying to recruit people to fight for al Shabaab. He also trained with weapons.
