FBI: 49 People Detained on Immigration Issues
Forty-nine people have been detained on immigration "concerns" after questioning for information about last week's terrorist attacks, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) chief Robert Mueller anounced on Monday.
"In the course of questioning a number of individuals throughout the country, we have 49 individuals who are currently being detained by the Immigration Service because of some concerns about the status of those individuals in the country," Mueller said.
CNN reported Sunday that a second man had been arrested in connection to the attacks, following one arrest on Friday -- WASHINGTON (AFP)
