Surely you’ve heard about China’s "fox hunt" campaign, a security initiative to track down wayward Chinese officials and executives hiding overseas. More than 850 fugitives were repatriated last year thanks to Beijing’s global search. But what about Arabs on the lam?
Every nation has its fugitives - criminal characters and shady entrepreneurs who flee their homeland to escape justice. Arabia’s “most wanted” may be Dr. Ayman Mohammed Rabie al-Zawahiri, the al-Qaeda head with a hand in terror attacks on four continents. His words pop up in media, but his exact whereabouts are a mystery. (Spot him and earn a $25 million reward from the US state department!)
But sometimes the lamsters are simply seeking freedom to speak their minds, progress their political agenda, and avoid persecution. Now you see them, now you don't! Take a look at some regional runaways.
