Marwan Alshehhi

Marwan Alshehhi (or al-Shehhi) was the September 11, 2001 Terrorist Attack hijacker who is accepted as having crashed United Airlines flight 175 into the World Trade Center. He trained at the Huffman Aviation[?] pilot school with Mohammed Atta.

Alshehhi was born on 9. May 1978 in the United Arab Emirates. He came to Germany on a military scholarship and studied in Bonn.

He is believed to have been related to Mohammed Atta. According to US authorities, he assisted in organising the attacks from within the USA. From testimony by FBI Director Mueller, Alshehhi was in charge of most of the funds, receiving money from Ali Abdul Aziz Ali[?] and Mohammed Yousef Mohamed Alqusaidi[?], who may be his brother.

He was 22 years old when he allegedly piloted the 767 into the south side of the Southern tower.
