U.S. and Mexican officials are searching for six Iraqis who crossed the border into the southern U.S. who may have "toxic materials" requiring refrigeration. These could be either biological or radiological materials. The Iraqis got into the U.S. with the help of the same human smugglers who bring in illegal aliens. Tips from the public, as well as undercover investigations, uncovered the plot.
Another report says that earlier this week, Mexican authorities detained six Iraqi citizens as they tried to cross into the U.S. from Tijuana. They claimed to be Germans who had arrived at the Tijuana airport the night before on a flight from Mexico City and have been returned to Mexico City for questioning.
It sounds like these are conflicting reports about the same 6 Iraqis. Let's hope the second report is the correct one.
Last week, the Border Patrol found a diary written in Arabic, containing names and telephone numbers, in a backpack left on a southern Arizona trail frequently used by illegal aliens.
