Mohammed A. Salameh : biography
Mohammed A. Salameh () (born September 1, 1967) is a convicted perpetrator of the 1993 World Trade Center Bombing. He is currently an inmate at ADX Florence in Florence, Colorado.
Salameh's 1978 Chevy Nova was used to ferry the nitric acid and urea used to construct the bomb used in the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center.
On March 4, 1993, the FBI arrested Salameh after he, having reported that his rental van was stolen, met with undercover FBI agent Bill Atkinson posing as a Ryder "loss prevention analyst". Earlier, the FBI traced the Ford Econoline van used in the World Trade Center bombing via vehicle identification number.
Despite failing his driving test four times, Salameh was the driver for the group. On January 24, 1993 he jumped a curb and tore the undercarriage from his car, injuring himself and Ramzi Yousef. He was checked out of Rahway Hospital the following day, and went to the garage to clean his car while Yousef was in hospital for four more days.
With his Nova in for repairs, Salameh got Nidal Ayyad to use his corporate account with Allied Signal to rent him a new car; although he got in a car accident again on February 16, colliding with a car.
Salameh's family fled the West Bank in 1967, owing to the Arab-Israeli War.
