WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Federal Bureau of Investigation today announced several additions to its Most Wanted Terrorists and Seeking Information – War on Terrorism lists. Individuals on these lists are being sought for their alleged involvement in various terrorist attacks or planned attacks around the world.

Added to the Most Wanted Terrorists list, which was originally established in October of 2001, are Ramadan Abdullah Mohammad Shallah, Abd Al Aziz Awda, Khadafi Abubakar Janjalani, Isnilon Totoni Hapilon, Jainal Antel Sali, Jr., and Mohammed Ali Hamadei. Shallah and Awda have been indicted for their alleged involvement in racketeering activities for the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, a terrorist group headquartered in Syria. Janjalani, Hapilon and Sali are allegedly part of the terrorist organization Abu Sayyaf Group, which is responsible for the kidnapping and murder of foreign nationals in and around the Republic of the Philippines. Hamadei has been indicted in the United States for his involvement in the June 14, 1985, hijacking of TWA flight 847, during which United States Navy Diver Robert Stethem was brutally tortured and murdered.

Added to the Seeking Information – War on Terrorism list are Abu Mus’ab Al-Zarqawi, Saleh Ali Saleh Nabhan and Noordin Mohammad Top. Al-Zarqawi is sought in connection with numerous terrorist attacks and threats in Iraq. Nabhan is wanted for questioning for attacks in Kenya in 2002. Top is allegedly a member of the Jemaah Islamiah group which was involved in bombings in Indonesia between 2002 and 2004.

All 26 of the individuals on the Most Wanted Terrorists list have been indicted by federal grand juries in various jurisdictions throughout the United States. The ten individuals on the Seeking Information – War on Terrorism list are being sought in connection with possible terrorist threats against the United States.

Director Robert S. Mueller, III, said, “We will continue to bring all necessary resources to bear to protect Americans from terrorist attacks. The combined strength of law enforcement at home and abroad, with a vigilant and engaged public, will ensure success.”

The Rewards For Justice Program, sponsored by the United States Department of State, offers rewards ranging from $5 million to $25 million for many of the terrorists. Information on this program can be found at
