American man arrested in Pakistani border region, Juddi Kenan from Florida Community College. aka Jude Kenan Mohammad

Mum of American, Jude Kenan Mohammad, arrested in Pakistan says it's a misunderstanding.
North Carolina (US), Oct.15 : The mother of a 20-year-old American college student, Jude Kenan Mohammad, detained by Pakistani officials in the restive tribal region along the Afghanistan border, has told FOX News that her son's incarceration is a case of "misunderstanding."

The North Carolina woman, who identified herself as the mother of Jude Kenan Mohammad, said that she recently contacted her son."I'm OK and he's OK. I don't understand. There must be a misunderstanding because my son is just fine. I'd rather not talk about it," she said. What radical jihad website located in Charlotte North Carolina could have provoked Jude Kenan Mohammad to makes the trip to North Waziristan ?

Pakistani officials said they picked up a man on Sunday who identified himself as a Florida college student in the region to visit a friend. The man was arrested at a checkpoint in the Mohmand Agency region of North Waziristan, considered a possible hiding place for Usama bin Laden.

A U.S. official confirmed to FOX News that the name of the 20-year-old being held in Pakistan is Jude Kenan Mohammad, not Juddi Kenan, as previously reported. Officials told FOX News that Mohammad is part of an ongoing FBI investigation, though he has yet to meet with anyone from the U.S. government, which hasn't been able to confirm any ties to terrorism.

Pakistani diplomatic sources told FOX News that the man holds both Pakistani and American passports, and said he has been released after officials interrogated him and found no connection to terror groups in the region.
