For Two Most Wanted Terrorists

02/12/07Most Wanted Terrorists

Mohammed Ali Hamadei and Ramadan Abdullah Mohammad Shallah

The State Department’s Rewards for Justice program is now offering a bounty up to $5 million for Mohammed Ali Hamadei, left, and Ramadan Abdullah Mohammad Shallah.

Someone, somewhere, has information on the whereabouts of Mohammed Ali Hamadei and Ramadan Abdullah Mohammad Shallah—both among our Most Wanted Terrorists—information that person might be willing to provide for a sizeable chunk of cash.

That’s the thinking behind the just announced rewards of up to $5 million for tips that lead authorities to these individuals. The rewards—offered by the U.S. Department of State’s Reward for Justice Program at the request of the FBI—are the first for both terrorists.

Who are these extremists and what are their crimes?… Hamadei is wanted for hijacking TWA Flight 847 overseas in 1985. Hamadei and his accomplices tied passengers up and beat them…then summarily executed U.S. Navy diver Robert Stethem and dumped his body on the tarmac. An alleged member of the terrorist organization Hizballah, Hamadei is believed to be living in Lebanon. Read more about Hamadei and see his wanted poster.…

Shallah is a founding member and leader of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, or PIJ, a terrorist organization headquartered in Damascus, Syria. He is wanted for a series of bombings, murders, extortions, and racketeering crimes. See his wanted poster for more details.If you have information about either extremist—or any of our Most Wanted Terrorists—please contact us immediately:
