Hunt for new 9/11 suspects revealed

A gang of previously unknown men are wanted by the FBI for their alleged role in the September 11 terror attacks, it has been reported.

Secret documents obtained by the WikiLeaks website detailing the movements of the three men in the days leading up to the atrocities have been published by The Daily Telegraph.

The diplomatic cable sent between the American embassy in Doha, Qatar, and the Department for Homeland Security in Washington, reveals the trio entered the US on a British Airways flight from London on August 15, 2001.

The men, named as Qataris Meshal Alhajri, Fahad Abdulla and Ali Alfehaid allegedly visited the World Trade Center and Statue of Liberty in New York and travelled to Washington DC and other locations in Virginia.

Several days later, on August 24, 2001, they flew to Los Angeles where they stayed before checking out of their hotel on September 10.

The cables said hotel staff became alarmed after seeing pilot uniforms and a smashed mobile phone in their room.
