WASHINGTON – The FBI has issued an alert to be on the lookout for Amer El-Maati, a Kuwaiti-born man sought in connection with possible terrorist threats in the United States.
El-Maati is described as 29 years old, 6-feet-tall, 209 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes.
He may be wearing a full beard and mustache. He requires corrective lenses and may be wearing eyeglasses.
El-Maati should be considered armed and dangerous. He may have the following aliases: Amro Badr Eldin Abou El-Maati and Amro Badr Abouelmaati.
The FBI, in its alert, urges anyone with information to contact a local FBI office or the nearest American embassy or consulate.
Back in February of this year, the FBI put out a similar "Be on the lookout for" alert for several Yemenis said to have ties to Al Qaeda. There was great fear at the time that these men were inside the United States, but most were rounded up in Yemen several days after the alert went out.
