NEW YORK (Reuters) - Authorities in Massachusetts
have identified five Arab men as suspects in Tuesday's attack on New
York City and have seized a rental car containing Arabic-language
flight training manuals at Logan International Airport, a source
told the Boston Herald newspaper.
Two of the men were brothers whose passports were
traced to the United Arab Emirates, the unidentified source told the
Herald. One of the men was a trained pilot, the paper reported on
its Web site on Wednesday.
The paper said investigators suspect the two
brothers were aboard hijacked United Airlines flight 175, which
pilot union officials said was one of the aircraft that crashed into
the World Trade Center.
Flight UA 175 left from Boston en route to Los
Angeles with 56 passengers on board. American Airlines flight 11
from Boston to Los Angeles crashed into the other World Trade Center
tower. Another aircraft hit the Pentagon and a fourth aircraft
crashed in Pennsylvania.
At least two other suspects flew to Logan on
Tuesday from Portland, Maine, where authorities believe they had
traveled after crossing over from Canada recently, the Herald
Authorities were informed about the rental car by
a civilian who got into a fight with several Arab men as they were
parking their car, the paper reported.
