SP's MAI - - INTERNAL SECURITY -

The Hus­sain Al Khawahir, a Saudi Ara­bian national, was ar­rested re­cently at Detroit Metropoli­tan Air­port af­ter CBP agents found two pres­sure cook­ers in his lug­gage, and a page miss­ing from his Saudi pass­port. Later, his nephew, Nasser Almar­zooq, who is study­ing me­chan­i­cal en­gi­neer­ing at the Univer­sity of Toledo in Ohio, said it was all a mis­un­der­stand­ing. He said he had asked his un­cle to bring the pres­sure cook­ers with him be­cause he liked to cook lamb in a pres­sure cooker, and that the pres­sure cooker he bought in the United States were just not good enough.

Al Khawahir first told the agents that he bought the pres­sure cooker for his nephew be­cause pres­sure cook­ers were not sold in the United States. The fed­eral agents said that Al Khawahir’s pass­port had a page miss­ing, and that he could not ex­plain why the page was torn from the pass­port.
