Former DC-Area Taxi Driver Added to Most-Wanted Terrorist List

Former taxi driver charged with providing resources to terrorist organization.

“We know he’s received training with weapons,” Lindsay Ram of the FBI’s Washington Field Office told ABC News. “We don’t want him using his passport to come back into the United States. He knows the language, the [Washington] area, the culture and even the transportation of the region, so we are concerned that he may try to come back to utilize those skills.”

Agent Ram also pointed out that Mohamed was a close associate of Zachary Chesser, another young man from the Washington suburbs who turned to terror. Chesser allegedly played a key role in al-Qaeda’s propaganda efforts before his arrest, and was sentenced to 25 years in prison in 2011 for providing aid to terrorists.
