Saud A.S. Al-Rasheed

Saud A.S. Al-Rasheed

Saud A.S. Al-Rasheed (Arabic: سعود الرشيد) (born January 30, 1981 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia) became briefly wanted in 2002, by the United States Department of Justice's FBI, in a BOLO alert (Be On the Lookout). The FBI alert was issued after his passport turned up in a new review of previously acquired 9/11 hijacker documents. [ [ FBI issued a BOLO (Be On The Lookout) for an individual by the name of Saud A.S. Al-Rasheed] , FBI national Press Release, August 20, 2002.] The FBI did not disclose the original recovery location of the newly reviewed 9/11 "materials," but the passport was later revealed to have been recovered from Afghanistan. Two days after the 2002 FBI alert, Saudi Arabia announced that Al-Rasheed was in custody at Riyadh.

Al-Rasheed's father later claimed that he had gone to Afghanistan "as part of a charity relief team" about February 2001.

In the FBI BOLO alert, issued late Tuesday August 20, 2002, the FBI reported that on August 15, 2002, "materials previously recovered during the War on Terrorism were found to be related to several of the September 11th hijackers. These same materials contained an image of a Saudi Arabian passport #C161433 issued to Saud A.S. Al-Rasheed, Date of Birth: 01/30/1981; Place of Birth: Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The passport was issued at Riyadh on May 29, 2000."

The FBI also posted his photograph on its Web site. The sudden bulletin, distributed worldwide, said Al-Rasheed was "armed and dangerous" and his whereabouts were unknown. Reuters reported that FBI spokesman Bill Carter declined to say what the materials were or where they were found.

But it was later revealed that his passport had been discovered in Afghanistan.

Two days later, Saudi Arabia announced that Al-Rasheed was a prisoner, in custody at Riyadh, on August 22, 2002.

Since then, his current status and whereabouts have been unknown to the public.
