Faris Ahmed Al-Zahrani.
CBS NEWS….Faris Ahmed Jamaan al-Showeel Al-Zahrani arrested, (Arabic: فارس أحمد جمعان آل شويل الزهراني‎) was on Saudi Arabia’s list of 26 ‘most-wanted’ suspected terrorists. He was arrested in Abha by Saudi police on August 5, 2004 on charges of terrorism. His capture was considered a serious blow to Al Qaeda in Saudi Arabia.

Four weeks prior to his arrest, Al-Zahrani wrote an article in which he said he was evading the Saudi crackdown. Several weeks before the arrest, Al-Zahrani said, in an interview with the online publication Voice of Jihad: “I would like to reassure the people who love me…I am careful in my movements and contacts, and I take all necessary precautions.” In the same statement, al-Zahrani rejected an amnesty that King Fahd had offered militants in June. Al-Zahrani and another man were arrested without incident, even though both were armed.

Abdulsalam Al-Zahrani lived in a three bedroom apartment in downtown Binghamton. His roommate says police searched his room for two to three hours.” The police, they came, and when they were allowed to enter into his room, they took all his stuff,” said Jules Sakho, Al-Zahrani’s roomate. His roommates say police also found a knife in a dumpster near the apartment.

But police do not have a motive at this time. Al-Zahrani’s roommates say he was dealing with a lot of problems. He expressed being worried about finishing his dissertation on time. He was also no longer on scholarship and didn’t have a job.
“I would think it was because of the whole dissertation being rejected. But I cannot confirm it, he had issues with his financials. I don’t know what he had against that professor,” said Luis Pena, a graduate student. His roommates and neighbors also say his behavior was strange.

“He was all the time shouting in Arabic, shouting threats, insulting this country (USA) for no reason,” said Sakho. “He used to make a lot of noise, always at Dunkin Donuts next door to our apartment, and he used to shout a lot,” said Kalpak Bahlearo, Al-Zahrani’s neighbor.

“He told me there were students, who were spies for the government of Jordan that were harassing him,” said Pena. “Sometimes, for no reason, asking if I am afraid of death or not, ” said Sakho. “He says a comment like, ‘I feel like just waking up and destroying the world’,” said Pena, more from this source.............
