PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AP) - Pakistani authorities once arrested an American citizen now known to have been killed in a U.S. drone strike in the country, but he escaped after being released on bail.
The Obama administration revealed Wednesday that Jude Kenan Mohammad died in a U.S. drone strike in Pakistan's tribal region, making him the fourth American citizen killed by unmanned aircraft in Pakistan and Yemen.
Mohammad was indicted by federal authorities in 2009 as part of an alleged plot to attack the U.S. Marine Corps base in Quantico, VA. Before he could be arrested, Mohammad fled to Pakistan.
Pakistani officials said in 2008 that Mohammad was arrested when he tried to enter the Mohmand tribal area without permission.
He was released on bail and failed to show up at a 2009 court hearing.
