American Airlines Mechanic Who Sabotaged Flight Linked to Possible Terrorist Organization | Travel and Leisure

 

Abdul-Majeed Marouf Ahmed Alani was denied bond by a federal judge on Wednesday, Sept. 17, after being accused of having links to a terrorist organization. An earlier report alleged that Alani sabotaged the flight because he was upset about ongoing union contract disputes that have been dragging on for many months that caused him some financial hardship.  However, it was discovered Alani had lied about taking a trip to Iraq to visit his brother, whom he allegedly told a coworker was a member of ISIS. Additionally, investigators found a “disturbing” and violent “ISIS video” and a money transfer of $700 to someone in Iraq.
