BAGHDAD, Iraq - The U.S. State Department said Monday it was offering a reward of up to $5 million for information leading to the capture and conviction of the last remaining fugitive wanted for the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center.
In a statement released in Baghdad, the State Department said it was looking for Iraqi-American Abdul Rahman Yasin, 45, believed to have helped build the bomb used in the Feb. 26, 1993, attack that killed six people.
The statement described Yasin as being 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighing about 180 pounds. He is epileptic and "possibly has a noticeable chemical scar on his right thigh."
Yasin was born in Bloomington, Ind., of Iraqi parents and moved to Iraq when he was young. He returned to the United States as part of a terrorist group, the statement said.
After fleeing the United States following the 1993 bombing, he was arrested and held in an Iraqi prison until being released in 2003.
He is believed to be hiding near Samarra, 60 miles north of Baghdad.

But, but, but, I thought there was no connection between Iraq and terrorism and the WTC bombing. <\sarcasm off>
Ask Clinton, he probably took money from him from one of the 111 times in one year he visted NYC which was 111 times more than he visited when that bombing happened.
.....111 times in one year for fundraisers.
Boy, you just gotta hand it to the DOJ and the feebs..crack soldiers in the "war on terror."
Puke. Barf. Gag. Retch.
Somebody please replace those dilrods with something more intelligent and motivated like a rock or a fresh dogpile.
"After fleeing the United States following the 1993 bombing, he was arrested and held in an Iraqi prison until
being released in 2003."
Silly question...WHY was he RELEASED?? Did we just have $5 million laying around we didn't know what to do with?
Remember when Saddam had all the inmates freed right before shock and awe!!!
