No-fly list man stranded in Bahrain returns to CA
Tuesday - 7/10/2012, 3:17pm EDT
SAN DIEGO (AP) - A U.S. citizen of Somali descent who was stranded in Bahrain for two weeks after being told his name appears on the U.S. government's no-fly list has returned to San Diego.
The San Diego chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations told The Associated Press on Tuesday that 20-yearold Ali Ahmed arrived Monday at San Diego after being given a pass by the U.S. Embassy in Bahrain to return home.
Ahmed was denied entry into Kenya two weeks ago and flown to Bahrain. He says he flew to Kenya to see his father after the two were separated by Somalia's civil war 14 years ago.
Ahmed says he has talked to a lawyer to see how to clear his name.
The FBI has said it will not discuss such cases.
