NEW YORK An FBI official says a notorious terrorist suspected of aiding the insurgency in Iraq will be added to the agency's list of its most wanted terrorists.
The official said Monday that an FBI committee recommended this month that 73-year-old Palestinian Abu Ibrahim be placed on the list. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the decision wasn't official.
An investigation by The Associated Press had revealed the terrorist was still alive and had fled to Syria.
Ibrahim has been indicted in the 1982 bombing of Pam Am Flight 830. The explosion killed a 16-year-old boy and wounded more than a dozen passengers as the plane headed to Honolulu from Tokyo.
The FBI official says it could take months for Ibrahim to appear on the list.
The AP story also raised questions about whether Ibrahim had been involved in the insurgency.

We're gonna get you... but we're giving you a few months' head start so you can go hide.
Abu Ibrahim, also known as Husayn al-Umari
