Lebanese Canadian accused of planning attack on Israel


July 7, 2011 | 10:35 am

A Canadian citizen who once lived in Michigan is accused of planning to travel to Israel to detonate a bomb on behalf of Hezbollah.

Faouzi Ayoub, 44, formerly of Dearborn, Mich., was added to the FBI’s most wanted list of terrorists on Wednesday after a 2-year-old indictment against him for passport fraud was unsealed. His whereabouts are unknown.

Ayoub, a native of Lebanon, is accused of trying to enter Israel in 2000 on a false passport issued to Frank Mariano Boschi in order to carry out a bombing attack for Hezbollah, a terrorist group based in Lebanon.

He reportedly was part of an exchange of 436 prisoners released by Israel for businessman Elhanan Tannenbaum and the bodies of three Israeli soldiers.
