FBI looking for five illegal immigrants

Monday, December 30, 2002

WASHINGTON -- The FBI said Sunday it is looking for five men of Arab ancestry who may have entered the country illegally last week.

The agency said the five men are believed to have arrived in the United States on or before Christmas Eve.

The five men are: Abid Noraiz Ali, Iftikhar Khozmai Ali, Mustafa Khan Owasi, Adil Pervez and Akbar Jamal, all born between 1969 and 1983. The FBI warned that the names and birth dates may be false.

The FBI said it had no indication the men were linked to terrorist activities, but still wanted to question the five based on information they had obtained.

Photographs of the men can be found online at www.fbi.gov/terrorinfo/ 122002si.htm, officials said.
