CAUTION

Alhassane Ould Mohamed is wanted for his alleged involvement in the murder of one United States Embassy employee, and the attempted murder of a second, in Niamey, Niger. On the evening of December 22, 2000, Mohamed allegedly shot and killed the first Embassy employee as he approached his diplomatic vehicle. A second Embassy employee accompanying the first gentleman was shot and wounded by a co-conspirator of Mohamed. Mohamed then allegedly retrieved the car keys from the deceased man's pockets and drove away in the victim's diplomatic vehicle.

Mohamed was arrested in Mali on December 25, 2000, and detained for murder. Although not formally charged, he remained in custody until he escaped in 2002. In late 2009, Mohamed killed four Saudi Arabian nationals in northern Niger. He was arrested for that crime in Mali in 2010, and sent back to Niger where he was convicted of the murders and sentenced to 20 years in prison. On June 1, 2013, Mohamed escaped from prison.

A federal arrest warrant was issued for Mohamed after he was indicted by the United States District Court, Eastern District of New York, on September 13, 2013, and charged with Murder of an Internationally Protected Person and Attempted Murder of an Internationally Protected Person.
