One is U.S. citizen
November 17, 2012
(NATIONAL) -- As U.S. lawmakers took closed door testimony Friday from former CIA Director David Petraeus on what he said was "significant terrorist involvement" in the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya, two individuals — one a United States citizen who allegedly provided support to a foreign terrorist organization, the other wanted for his alleged role in the overseas kidnapping of an American — were added this week to the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorists list.

The second man who is wanted is Raddulan Sahiron, a native of the Philippines. He is wanted for his alleged involvement in the 1993 kidnapping of an American in the Philippines by the Abu Sayyaf Group, designated a foreign terrorist organization in 1997.
Sahiron, believed to be the leader of the Abu Sayyaf Group, was indicted on federal hostage-taking charges and may currently be in the area of Patikul Jolo, Sulu, Philippines.
And a third man, wanted for questioning in connection with providing material support to terrorists has been added to the FBI’s “Seeking Information—Terrorism” list.
He is identified as Shaykh Aminullah who is wanted for questioning in connection with providing material support to terrorists…with the aid of Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Tayyiba (designated a foreign terrorist organization in 2001).
Among other activities, the FBI alleges Aminullah provided assistance, including funding and recruits, to the Al Qaeda network; provided funding and other resources, including explosive vests, to the Taliban; and facilitated the activities of anti-coalition militants operating in Afghanistan by raising money in support of terrorist activities. He is believed to be in the Ganj District of Peshawar, Pakistan.
The FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorists List was created in October 2001. The agency subsequently created the “Seeking Information—Terrorism” list to publicize the agency’s efforts to locate terrorism suspects not yet indicted in the U.S.
The FBI says individuals named to the Most Wanted Terrorists list must:
· Have threatened the security of U.S. nationals or U.S. national security;
· Be considered a dangerous menace to society;
· Have indicated a willingness to commit or indicate to commit an act to cause death or serious bodily injury; prepare or plan terrorist activity; gather information on potential targets for terrorist activity; or solicit funds or other things of value for terrorist activity;
· Have provided material support such as currency or financial services or assistance to a terrorist organization but do not necessarily have to belong to that organization;
· Be subject to lawful detention, either by the U.S. government based on an active federal warrant for a serious felony offense or by any other lawful authority; and
· Be the subject of a pending FBI investigation.
Individuals on the Seeking Information—Terrorism list are being sought for questioning in connection with terrorist threats against the U.S. Unlike those on the Most Wanted Terrorists list, these individuals have not been indicted by the U.S. government.
