American Airlines mechanic accused of sabotaging plane may have ties to Terrorists
Reports suggest that a mechanic employed at American Airlines had sabotaged a plane. Speculations are that he might be somewhere related to the terrorists.
The flight was carrying a total of 150 people whose lives were put at risk due to terrorist intents of the American Airlines mechanic.
He had appealed for a bail which was immediately declined by the judge stating the reason that proper evidence that proves that the mechanic had done the act due to the terrorist intentions.
The flight was about to take off as it sped on the runway when pilots noticed the error notifications. The flight was aborted there and then. After looking into it, they found a piece of foam glued to the navigation system.
On this, the mechanic commented that he had some internal issues with the Airlines. He had purposely messed with the navigation system so that the mechanic could get overtime to solve the problem.
He was only charged with willfully destroying and harming the aircraft before the prosecutors dug deeper and found his connections with terrorism.
The mechanic has his family back in Iraq but he was born in America which makes him a native American. His name is Abdul-Majeed Marouf Ahmed Alani who was arrested on the 5th of September.
Prosecutors found out a message on his phone in Arabic which was sent by Abdul to somebody else. The content of the message was to take revenge from Non-Muslims for Allah.
Even video footage was found that contained execution. He had even lied about visiting his brother back in Iraq. He was also found out to be connected to the ISIS.
Some suspicious transactions were made too. He had paid seven hundred US dollars to someone back in Iraq which raised suspicions.
