UK Citizen Was Subject Of Worldwide Terror Alert
A British citizen whose suspicious behavior at a Georgia flight
school sparked an international terror hunt has been arreested in
Essex, England, by British anti-terror officers.
Zayead Christopher Hajaig, 35, is suspected of obtaining
official British documents by deception Wednesday. He's wanted in
the US on weapons and immigration charges.
"At approximately 10 a.m. [Wednesday], officers from the
Metropolitan Anti-Terrorist Branch arrested a 35-year-old man at
residential premises in Essex under the Theft Act 1968 for
allegedly obtaining documents by deception," said an Essex
Metropolitan Police spokesman, quoted by the BBC. "He remains in
custody at an Essex police station. Inquiries are continuing."
As ANN reported a week ago, Hajaig
disappeared after employees of a flight school in Lawrenceville,
GA, reported he'd overstayed his visa. He was a
student at Astron Enterprises fligth school, based on Briscoe Field
in Gwinnett County. School employees said he pushed hard to take
lessons for which he simply wasn't qualified.
Two of the 19 9/11 hijackers also took flight lessons at Briscoe
The US government issued a worldwide terror alert. Hajaig was
indicted by an Atlanta federal grand jury earlier this month.
