“AMERICA’S MOST WANTED” TO EXAMINE EVENTS OF 9/11 ON 24TH SEASON PREMIERE SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, ON FOX
One of FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorists To Be Profiled
On a very special episode of AMERICA’S MOST WANTED, airing Saturday, Sept. 11 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX, host John Walsh will look back at the day that changed America forever. Reporting from Ground Zero, Walsh will take viewers through the events of September 11 and will offer updates on the search for those responsible. As part of the 24th season premiere, this retrospective will feature footage from Walsh’s visit to the site on September 13, 2001 – just two days after the attacks.
In addition, AMERICA’S MOST WANTED is asking for viewers’ help in tracking down Adnan G. El Shukrijumah, one of the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorists. El Shukrijumah is believed to be one of the men overseeing Al-Qaeda’s efforts in planning attacks in the United Statesand other Western countries. He is suspected as the mastermind behind last year’s attempted bombing of a New York City subway station. El Shukrijumah grew up in Brooklyn, NY, and speaks English fluently. He also completed military flight training and did translation work for Omar Abdel Rahman, the cleric who was linked to the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center.
Among its many accomplishments, AMERICA’S MOST WANTED has helped capture more than 1,100 criminals, including 17 on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted list. The series has also reunited 43 missing children with their families, which is Walsh’s proudest achievement. In March 2010, President Obama appeared on AMW to congratulate the series on its milestone 1000th episode.
AMERICA’S MOST WANTED is produced by STF Productions, Inc. John Walsh is host and executive producer, and Steve Katz is co-executive producer.
