    A man trained as a pilot at a Lawrenceville airport three years ago raised an international terror alert this week. He was found in Britain on Friday, the FBI said.

FBI officials released little information about Hajaig on Friday. They would not say whether he had been detained or how he had been located.

    OUR OPINIONS: Clayton solicitor confused about justice vs. revenge Staff Friday, July 26, 2002 By the time you read this, Clayton County may have declared Julia Munger Public Enemy No. 1. She hasn't robbed any banks at gunpoint. She's not the ringleader of a stolen car gang. Far as we know, the woman never jaywalked a day in her life. So what dastardly deeds qualify Munger for the most wanted list? She won't stop talking to the media. Munger is the mother of a 23-year-old autistic son who flew into a sudden, profanity-laced rage at a supermarket in Morrow. She...
