One of two hijackers who had been on the U.S. government's watch list
of suspected terrorists, he was traveling on a B-1 visa, granted for
business travel within the United States. Al-Midhar also had obtained a
B-2 visa, which permits pleasure travel in the country, although that
visa had expired. The FBI said he lived in San Diego last year with two
other suspects and also may have spent time in Los Angeles and New York.
U.S. intelligence officers are exploring his background to determine
whether he was linked to Zein al-Abidine al-Midhar, the former head of
the Islamic Army of Aden in Yemen, who was executed a few years ago in
connection with a kidnapping. That group was one of three to claim
credit for last fall's bombing of the USS Cole.

have stayed in Fort Lee, N.J., Wayne, N.J., and Los Angeles.

training for a few months at a private school in Scottsdale, Ariz., but

Saudi Arabia, but he also has been linked to addresses in San Diego and
Hollywood, Fla. His name was not on the American Airlines manifest for
the flight because he may not have had a ticket.
